What you'll learn on the course
The Urban Design and Planning major focuses on the interaction between planning, geography and environmental design.
Urban Design and Planning is founded on the social, environmental, political, aesthetic and economic importance of design and planning in the public realm. The major allows you to explore urban design (the shaping of urban space) and urban planning (the strategic and regulatory mediation of urban change), while also taking subjects in urban geography.
If you want to learn about the design of urban futures, this major allows you to explore two strongly related fields of environmental practice: urban design as the shaping of urban space and urban planning as the strategic and regulatory mediation of urban change.Careers
This major can lead to further study in the Master of Urban Design or the Master of Urban Planning at Melbourne.
Urban Design graduates may work for urban design, architecture and planning practices as well as state and local government, where they are instrumental in developing and communicating strategic design frameworks and processes that deliver successful public spaces.
The Master of Urban Planning leads to professional accreditation with the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA).
Urban Planning graduates may work in government departments and agencies or for local councils in cities and regions. The private sector offers employment opportunities in urban planning and design consultancies, environmental agencies, major developers, corporations and utility companies.
