Community home page
The Planning program in the Department of Geography offers applied courses in the form of workshops, internships, international field courses and the Current Issues Paper (an individual piece of primary research on a practical topic), which emphasize testing ideas and skills, and bringing real-world problems into the classroom for critical reflection.
The approach to planning the department advocates is interdisciplinary, critical and engaged. Students can engage with planning theory and history, political economy and public finance, economics, research methods, policy analysis, urban design, architecture, environmental studies, international development, anthropology, history, feminism, Marxism, critical theory, cultural studies, as well as urban, social, historical and cultural geography.
