Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning (Honours)
University of Southern Queensland - External

Course outline

USQ’s Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning (Honours) equips you to be an urban and regional planner and designer of the future for cities, transport hubs and industrial infrastructure. Working with professionals from other disciplines, community groups, government and developers, urban and regional planners prepare plans for all aspects of town planning. You develop skills in environmental assessment and the sustainable use of land resources, community consultation, planning legislation, economics, transport planning, urban design, plan making and project management. Gain important practical skills by working with sophisticated technology and tools including satellite imagery for 3D mapping and visualisation of the natural and built environment. Choose a research project in your fourth year to investigate a specific urban and regional planning area, which also can provide a pathway for further study and research.
