Master of Urbanism

University of Sydney

The Master of Urbanism, developed in consultation with Industry and the Planning Institute of Australia is a pathway to specialisation as a professional urban planner, urban designer, heritage architect or consultant. This has been developed to address the urgent need for specialists in the planning, development and architectural industries who understand the complex interrelationships between the various aspects of environmental planning. During the program, students will benefit from mentoring by leading industry experts, who will share the latest knowledge and provide direct professional input. The core units of study will provide students with an overview of urbanism, and allow them to specialise in the areas of urban and regional planning, urban design and heritage conservation. Students will develop a sophisticated understanding of the history and theory of these three areas, including their interrelationship, key concepts, analytical and technical skills.
