Program description

Graduate Diploma of Environmental Planning

Environmental planning is critical for the sustainability of places, communities, regions and environments. The Graduate Diploma of Environmental Planning is offered in either full-time or part-time mode. The course can be studied on-campus at Hobart or by Distance Education.

Course objectives

The course addresses the central role of environmental planning in achieving environmental, social and economic sustainability. Essential planning theory is integrated with understandings drawn from biophysical, social, cultural, legal and public policy disciplines. Urban, regional and rural environments are considered, and emphasis is given to planning across all land tenures at catchment and landscape scales. Extensive use of case studies provides students with practical examples of major environmental planning issues.

Teaching of units within the course is linked to an active staff and graduate student research program, and with staff involvements in community, government and industry planning activities. Students undertake an industry placement that provides an opportunity to incorporate the knowledge gained in the course into planning practice.

Admission requirements

Australian Bachelor's degree in any discipline, preferably at credit level or better, or other tertiary qualifications deemed by the University to be equivalent.
