In the professionally accredited Master of Planning, you will gain knowledge and skills in planning for diverse communities and just and sustainable futures. Your learning experience is grounded in Tasmania’s rich heritage of environmental and social justice.
If you are looking to progress to the next stage of your career, or you want to contribute to tackling local, regional and global challenges, this accredited course will take you there.
Planning at the University of Tasmania focuses on contemporary issues and real-world professional development:
Climate challenges. Climate change is the unprecedented crisis of our times and is emerging as the determining factor in how we plan for cities and regions.
The staff are recognised international leaders, with research interests that extend from climate adaptation to the interaction of climate risk with land-use economics. In studying with UTAS, you will attain knowledge and skills in planning for just climate outcomes.
Equitable places. UTAS promotes planning for equitable cities and regions, and the island state of Tasmania provides a unique environment in this regard.
Urban diversity, cultural landscapes, natural areas and unique ecosystems are in close proximity and all easily accessible.
Leveraging the local diversity afforded by the medium sized city of Hobart, we offer electives in environmental planning, protected area planning, sustainability and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
In addition, as a student you will benefit from the close ties with the planning profession, including work placement opportunities and guest lecturers. Low student to teacher ratios maximise opportunities for academic interaction and support.
You will undertake a semester long industry placement that provides opportunities to incorporate the knowledge gained in the course into planning practice.
You will also collaborate in-class and via distance to gain a breadth of knowledge. Self-directed activities enable you to develop your personal interests.
The course includes KGA709 Professional Practice. In this unit students negotiate placement in a government or private sector organisation which is approved by the University.
There they work on one or more practical tasks under the supervision of a suitably qualified professional.
