USQ’s Associate Degree of Spatial Science (Urban and Regional Planning) is the perfect way to begin or finalise your experience in planning. The Associate Degree is a qualification in its own right, and you can stop there if you want to, but it is also a pathway to a Bachelor degree. This means that the 16 courses (subjects) that you study can count towards a Bachelor degree.
Why Urban and Regional Planning?
Urban and regional planning provides you with the knowledge and skills required to design communities and assess the impact of their development. Working with community groups, government and developers, urban and regional planners prepare plans for residential, retail and industrial areas, transport links, as well as conduct environmental impact assessments. They work closely with other professionals in architecture, environment and conservation, engineering, community services and property development.
