Master of Planning

The School of Planning offers a professional planning education at the graduate level. The Master of Planning program is recognized by the Canadian Institute of Planners. Our approach to education involves experiential learning, with projects done in cooperation with community groups. We're located in a shared large historic building with the School of Architecture, so students have access to all the Faculty's technical services: audio-visual resources, model building, photography and computer labs, and a wood-working shop.

You'll work in a collegial and cooperative atmosphere with small class sizes (15 - 25 students) providing great opportunities for debate and discussion. Full time graduate students are given work spaces in the School and are represented on decision-making bodies within the Faculty. Students apply for scholarships and research assistantships within the School.

Our graduates are highly valued by public, private, and non-profit organizations. For more information, click on Careers After Graduation.
