Bachelor of Urban Planning (Honours)
Griffith University - Gold Coast

Course outline

In this degree, you’ll learn how to manage the social and spatial conditions of urban life, helping to create a more sustainable future. You’ll be prepared to tackle issues such as climate change, regional growth management and transport planning, and gain an in-depth knowledge of environmental management, sustainable development, spatial analysis and urban modelling. Through your studies, you can focus on the environment with this degree, or opt to specialise in transport under our new majors. You’ll be able to apply the principles you have learnt in the project-based studio courses. You’ll be taught by academics who have a strong footing in the industry and have the opportunity to network and connect with industry professionals throughout your degree. What’s more, you’ll get the chance to undertake an industry placement, allowing you to put your skills into practice and make valuable industry contacts before you graduate. In your final year you will complete an independent research project under the supervision of an academic staff member. The Honours program is a critical element for students seeking a direct pathway into research, academia and employment in many consulting and government organisations that prioritise the employment of honours graduates.
