About

Urban and Regional Planning is concerned with sustaining the environment and developing economic and social wellbeing. Urban and Regional Planning programe is offered at University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.

Overview

Key facts

In a context of increased technological change, rapid urbanisation, social transformation, and a changing natural environment, planning is about efficient and effective space management and creating places with meaning and quality.

The Urban and Regional Planning at University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg programme covers a range of fields, including geography, economics, sociology, and mathematics.

Core planning subjects range from the design of urban spaces and principles of place-making in a culturally diverse context, to policies for the planning and management of entire spatial regions. The classes involve mostly small group teaching, and expose you to real-life issues during practical field trips.

Planners often work in local, provincial, or national government, as well as in large companies with property portfolios, like insurance firms, and in communities, NGOs, and independent consultancies.

Postgraduate study

If you achieve the minimum requirements at the end of the three-year BSc(URP) programme, you may register for the professional BSc(URP) Honours programme, which enables you to register with the South African Council of Planners (SACPLAN) after you have gained necessary practical experience.
