The sustainability of tomorrow's communities depends on how they are planned today
Rapid urbanisation, a changing climate, and a carbon-constrained economy, are key challenges. Professional urban, regional and environmental planners are playing an increasing role in ensuring we live in more sustainable and vibrant communities.
Learn how to manage environmental issues and human activities in urban and regional planning practices. You'll develop specialist knowledge and skills in the areas of land use and environmental planning, biophysical, socio-economic and cultural sciences, statutory planning in the Queensland context, and professional and ethical planning practice.
Study urban and environmental planning at Griffith
The inclusion of work-integrated learning activities in the urban and environmental planning degree program demonstrates our commitment to preparing graduates for success in their working life.
Our planning degrees are distinctive in putting the “environment” into planning policy and practice – you’ll study within Australia’s first School of Environment. We provide design and evidence based planning studios that draw upon the socio-economic and biophysical sciences to give you the skills you’ll need to tackle complex real world contemporary planning problems.
We have one of the largest teams of urban and environmental planning educators in Australia, who are leaders in the field. The Bachelor of Urban and Environmental Planning is accredited by the Planning Institute of Australia to ensure our graduates meet the strict accreditation requirements for employment as a professional planner.
Architecture and Planning at Griffith are rated 5-stars for student support and learner engagement by the Good Universities Guide 2019, a leading independent provider of high-quality education and career information.
Bachelor of Urban and Environmental Planning/Bachelor of Science
Jasmine Divall decided to follow in her sister's footsteps after seeing how she loved attending Griffith University. With a passion for solving environmental issues and sustainable urban development she enrolled in a Bachelor of Urban and Environmental Planning / Bachelor of Science double degree. 'I love having the opportunity to solve real problems and work on projects that can contribute to building better environments,' Jasmine said. 'I also enjoy studying a range of subjects in my double degree which has allowed me to realise my true values and passions.'
Our graduates are highly successful and follow a number of career paths, from urban planning in cities through to strategic planning for metropolitan regions; from planning for natural resource management to transport and social planning. You may find work in development companies implementing proposals for new housing estates, tourism complexes, transport networks, shopping centres and other commercial projects. You'll also find opportunities with all levels of government, including state and local government agencies, as well as business and industry groups, community organisations and private consulting firms.
