We strive to link theory with practice in our programs. Studio courses,
where learning is gained through real projects based in the community,
are central to the graduate planning program, and to the honours year
of the undergraduate community design program.
We offer several programs that respond to particular needs:
- Bachelor of Community Design
- is a general undergraduate program for students who are interested in understanding how natural and cultural communities work, and the principles used by planners and designers to shape those communities.
- Bachelor of Community Design Honours
- provides an opportunity for students who do well in their studies to deepen their understanding through additional course work, and to gain professional recognition for their studies from the Canadian Institute of Planners.
- Master of Planning
- is a graduate program that provides a foundation for careers in planning, offering students the opportunity to apply their undergraduate studies in a planning career. This program is also recognized by the Canadian Institute of Planners.
- Master of Planning Studies
- is a graduate degree program offering professional planners the opportunity to further their studies and to contribute to the profession by conducting research.
At Dalhousie and in the School of Planning we expect a high
level of academic integrity in all scholarly work. Please check http://academicintegrity.dal.ca/
