3. MESSAGE FROM KATE BOOTH PhD, Lecturer in Human Geography (Planning), University of Tasmania:
Want to add depth to your case for why planning matters?
Join the Master of Planning course at UTAS (Geography and Spatial Sciences).
We’ll help you to dive into planning theory to help you make sense of planning practice. And in most of the classes within the course, you are able to choose your case studies or focus, which means you can craft the program to suit your interests. Through interaction with planning professionals and other students, you will draw on biophysical, social, cultural, legal and public policy disciplines. As well as the introductory and legal parts of the course, there are separate classes focusing on urban planning and regional planning to allow you to focus on particular issues that come up in these different places.
You can study the course by distance so that you can fit study in around a busy schedule.
