Master's degrees in Geography, Planning, Environment, and Development and Urban Planning and Development

These Master’s degrees offer a wide range of specialized courses via degree-granting and continuing education formats. Combined with work-study and apprenticeship training opportunities, these courses prepare students for urban and territorial (urban, peri-urban, rural, alpine, and protected areas) planning careers where they will work closely with various socio-economic and professional actors in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors.

At the heart of IUGA’s programs are workshops, internships, and on-the-job training that are integrated into active, collaborative, and participatory teaching approaches: learning-by-doing, “flipped classrooms”, creativity workshops, hackathons...

Two urban (Campus Sud Grenoble, in partnership with the École Nationale d'Architecture de Grenoble) and rural (PERCO Pradel, in the Ardèche) educational FabLabs are being developed in collaboration with local actors and residents.

The teaching staff is highly international, with three IUGA master's programs taught in English. IUGA is currently developing educational projects with its network of international partners located throughout the world.

IUGA students are fully involved in their education and career development, thanks to dynamic student organizations such as the IUGA Alumni Network, ACTe, City Trotter, and the "Junior des Territoires".
