Urban planners are actively engaged with some of the pressing issues of our time, including the impact of climate change, sustainable resourcing challenges and the pressures of urbanisation. Urban planning focuses on the intersection of the built environment and the public interest.
The Urban Planning major Handbook entry stipulates the complete requirements for the Urban Planning major.
Always use the University Handbook as your primary course planning tool.

Double Majors, Minors and Specialisations
The Bachelor of Design offers unique flexibility with the option of completing majors, minors, double majors and specialisations.
Urban Planning Double Majors
Urban Planning double majors can be completed with Civil Systems, Computing, Construction, Digital Technologies, Graphic Design, Landscape Architecture, Mechanical Systems, Performance, Property and Spatial Systems.
Minors are a shortened sequence of subjects, taken from the existing majors in the degree. They provide a complementary course of study to a student’s major, and offer an alternative to committing to a double major, or for two areas where a double major is not available.
