Master of Environmental Planning

Course Description

Special Note: This Masters course is not approved by DEEWR for student income support payments (i.e. Youth Allowance and Austudy).
Environmental planning is critical for the sustainability of places, communities, regions and environments. This course is professionally accredited by the Planning Institute of Australia and offers outstanding career opportunities and flexible study options. The Master of Environmental Planning is offered by the School of Geography and Environmental Studies in either full-time or part-time mode. The course can be studied on-campus at Hobart or by Distance Education.

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. Students undertake an industry placement that provides opportunities to incorporate the knowledge gained in the course into planning practice. Masters students undertake a planning project or thesis in addition to their coursework.
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.

[[Career Outcomes]]
The MEnvPlg can lead to positions in planning for urban, rural, regional and natural environments. Environmental planners are employed by local and state governments across Australia, the Commonwealth Government, as well as private sector firms such as planning consultants. Students completing the thesis component of the masters course can apply to undertake a PhD in environmental planning.

[[Professional Recognition]]
The course is accredited by the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA). After one year of relevant work experience, graduates are eligible to apply for PIA corporate membership.
