We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Rural Planning equip postgraduates with specialist training in developing and maintaining the infrastructure of rural towns, villages, and estates.
Related specialisms within this subject include topics such as Country Planning, Estate Management and Rural Conservation. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject. Sufficient work experience may also be accepted.
Degrees in Rural Planning are highly varied, meaning you could specialise in a variety of areas including: rural estate management; forestry and game management; agriculture; planning, land and environmental law.
You will explore the implications for those living in rural areas, and how their lives might be improved through enhanced practices, such as: cultivating a means for sustainable agriculture, in some cases with limited resources; improving road access; developing better technology to assist day-to-day activities.
Careers could include positions in rural business management, conservation management, chartered surveying, rural valuation, legal roles in private firms or governing bodies, and roles in the heritage and tourism sectors.
If you would prefer a research career, you may wish to use your Masters degree as the first step towards further study at PhD level.
