About the courseWe believe at the heart of planning lies a commitment to humane city-regions, healthy environments and social well-being for everyone, we strive to foster places that are liveable, equitable, and sustainable. Located within a large Geography Department, our approach to planning is interdisciplinary, critical and engaged, where students can pursue their interests in planning theory and history, political economy and public finance, policy analysis, urban design, environmental studies, and international development. The Planning Program offers a fully accredited Master?s degree to suit the needs of students intent on working as planners or pursuing doctoral studies in planning or related fields. While the purpose of the Core Curriculum is to provide students with the kinds of knowledge considered essential to the education of a planner (history, theory, criticism, methods, skills), the six areas of Concentration in Planning offer everyone the opportunity for more in-depth study related to their future work.
