Overview

Why to study

The focus of the The Northern and Rural Community Planning degree at the University of Northern British Columbia  is to promote an understanding of the complexity and diversity of environmental problems, to develop an appreciation of community change processes, and to provide planners with knowledge which will improve the quality of the built environment and reduce the impact of human activities on the natural world. 

The unique planning requirements of smaller communities and rural regions demand a grounding in both physical and social science methods and an understanding of the relationship between northern communities and surrounding rural resource regions.  Environmental planning necessitates strategic thought and action combined with knowledge grounded in professional practice.  The Northern Rural and Community Planning major combines concepts such as bioregionalism, sustainability and landscape design within the context of physical land-use planning, social planning and community economic development.
