|Description:||There's never been a better time to be a planner. The world has seen unprecedented growth in urban areas and, for the first time, more people live in cities than in rural areas. As a Planning student, you'll learn to manage the growth of our communities, whether it's guiding residential development, designing efficient transportation routes, or creating a vision for a city's future.
By taking courses in environmental planning, urban design, political systems, law, and housing, you'll gain the knowledge you need to succeed. You'll build models, design presentations, and use technology such as geographic information systems. A professional program, Planning will teach you about large urban centres, smaller communities, and natural areas. This knowledge of planning in a variety of settings - along with the skills you'll develop - is what makes our graduates so well respected in the profession. Waterloo's School of Planning ranks #1 in Canada for how well sustainability issues are integrated into the planning curriculum (Corporate Knights magazine).
