Key topics at IPS

We offer thesis supervision (in English and German) to Bachelor and Masters students, who are interested in topics such as urban change, planning, and governance; as well as mobilities, infrastructure and housing. The geographical focus is open.

Our interdisciplinary perspective opens a variety of methodological approaches; in principle, theoretical and empirical material should be combined. The main topics listed in the PDF have a guiding propose only.

The interdisciplinary diversity of the department is reflected in previous theses. These are often characterised by a multi-scalar perspective, examining global issues (such as migration) in terms of their local impacts. The geographical focus ranges from Dortmund to various cities and regions in the global South.
