Master of Urban and Regional Planning

The sustainable management of our cities and regions is one of the most pressing issues in the 21st century. Urban and regional planners are at the forefront of this challenge, working in government and the private sector to guide urban and regional change and to manage the social, environmental, and economic impacts of development.

Specialist planners work in fields such as urban design, heritage conservation, development assessment and strategic planning, including housing policy. The school's urban and regional planning program provides the required knowledge and skills for professional planning practice within Australia, whilst understanding the complexity of the contemporary global city.

The program aims to introduce students to key planning theories and debates while instilling the necessary professional knowledge and skills required to underpin planning practice.

The Master’s degree program is accredited by the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA). Master's graduates are eligible, subject to professional experience requirements, for corporate membership of the PIA.
