New Master of Planning program at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada

Ryerson University

The School of Urban and Regional Planning at Ryerson University is pleased to announce the launch of the new Master of Planning (Urban Development) program*, scheduled to commence in Fall 2008.

Our program focus is on urban development, defined as the restructuring, regeneration and revitalization of existing metropolitan areas. The curriculum centres around an innovative concentration on design approaches for contemporary metropolitan regions, through which students develop a nuanced understanding of current urban dynamics--both local and global. Our program is unique in offering professional study of urban development, a contemporary concern with accommodating growth in and restructuring of already built-up areas to avoid further sprawl. Our program focus is activated through an innovative integration of the intertwined domains of 'culture' and 'nature', providing a combined multicultural and ecological framework to facilitate the study and practice of sustainable urban development.

*The program is pending final approval at the Ontario Council of Graduate Studies and the Ryerson University Board of Governors.
