This is a four year degree dedicated to the study of Environmental Planning. The degree is unique in that it offers a multi-disciplinary research-led programme in Environmental Planning consistent with the changing needs of contemporary planning theory and practice. The degree emphasises the integrated nature of planning through the delivery of papers from social, economic, political and environmental sciences to understand and evaluate planning processes, policies and tools set within New Zealand, and increasingly global, systems. The interdisciplinary nature of the degree provides students with the opportunities to develop strength in areas of choice. The Environmental Science and Resource Planning pathway and programmes differentiate the Waikato degree from many other planning programmes.
