This degree's interdisciplinary social and environmental orientation to planning marks out a distinctive edge for graduates compared to more traditional programs with their focus on urban design and architecture. It builds on Macquarie University's existing strengths in urban studies and environmental management to integrate economic, social, environmental and cultural dimensions of planning and urban management. It has strong interdisciplinary links into environmental studies, development studies and the social science program. It is taught by teachers with a very strong research profile in the fields of urban studies, climate change, risk management and sustainability in urban settings.
