Master of Urban Design

  • CRICOS code: 072812A


Course specialities

The Master of Urban Design puts theory into practice via our suite of studios. Studios emphasise the importance of place and fieldwork in design and studio projects are approached as speculative design-research explorations, where innovation and discovery are combined with advanced geospatial analytics, multidimensional and procedural modelling, and virtual reality technology.

Professional and community involvement play an integral role in our studio experiences.

You will undertake a range of history and theory subjects along with three design studios where you develop your practical, creative skills to apply on real-life urban design problems.

The program covers:

  • Urban history, theory and communications;
  • Urban design practice;
  • Urban planning issues;
  • Urban design research.

Students must complete:

  • 137.5 points of core subjects
  • 37.5 points of electives
  • Students also complete 25 points from ABPL90376 Urban Design Thesis, which comprise the degree's capstone experience and provide students with the necessary research preparation for doctoral study.
