Course sub-headings

Course overview

The Master of Planning has been designed as an introduction to the challenges of an ever-changing urban, regional and rural environment. The course offers the opportunity of cross-faculty specialisation in six key areas which are central to facilitating strategic change on complex planning issues locally, regionally and globally.

 

As a graduate of the course, you will be able to grasp the complexity of projects and understand the broad range of participants that need to work together to achieve sound and effective planning outcomes. You will have a developed understanding of planning across a range of disciplines and will be equipped to collaborate on projects and on processes that deliver integrated solutions for both the public and private sectors.

 

The Master of Planning is relevant if you have a related undergraduate degree or significant professional experience in this field and are looking to up-skill, enhance or broaden your qualifications. It is also suitable if you are seeking a career change and have successfully completed an undergraduate degree in another discipline.

 

The Urban Design specialism (Geelong Waterfront Campus) and the Healthy Cities specialism (Melbourne Burwood Campus) can only be completed in the on-campus mode.
