The program introduces you to contemporary planning theories and debates while instilling professional expertise in key areas of heritage conservation and policy. As a highly trained graduate you will be differenitated through your broad knowledge of urbanism and deep specialisation in heritage to offer your expertise across a range of urban conservation issues.
The Heritage Conservation stream within the Master of Urbanism is two-year postgraduate program that will allow you choose core units designed to develop skills in the assessment, interpretation, management, formulation of policy, and documentation of culturally significant places, including buildings, sites and cultural landscapes.
The Master of Urbanism, developed in consultation with Industry and the Planning Institute of Australia is a pathway to specialisation as a professional urban planner, urban designer, heritage architect or consultant. It has been developed to address the urgent need for specialists in the planning, development and architectural industries who understand the complex interrelationships between the various aspects of environmental planning.
During the program, you will benefit from mentoring by leading industry experts, who will share the latest knowledge and provide direct professional input. The core units of study will provide you with an overview of urbanism, and allow you to specialise in the areas of urban and regional planning, urban design and heritage conservation. You will develop a sophisticated understanding of the history and theory of these three areas, including their interrelationship, key concepts, analytical and technical skills.
Throughout your degree, you will be able to select from a range of electives to deepen or broaden your studies, including the option to take an international field studio placement (for domestic students). The course will introduce you to the design of new architectural additions, alterations and adaptations to old buildings of recognised value and the conservation of modern materials.
To be eligible for this degree, you need to have already completed a bachelor's degree in planning, architecture, design, human geography and/or related fields in the sciences or humanities, or have completed an approved Graduate Diploma.
