Together with dedicated professional practitioners, sessional instructors and adjunct professors. We contribute to key planning debates and professional practice on multiple fronts -- participatory planning and design, homelessness and housing, urban revitalization, arts and culture, social justice issues, environmental sustainability, regional planning issues, transportation planning and infrastructure, age-friendly and child-friendly planning and design, and Indigenous planning and governance.
Our unique program in City Planning, at the University of Manitoba focuses on studio-based, hands-on, experiential learning. Throughout the two-year program, students work with governmental, non-profit and Indigenous clients to address real-life planning issues. Studio work is complemented by courses on planning theory, research methods and professional practice, as well as a recommended summer internship to gain professional experience.
Students also have the opportunity to take electives outside the Faculty, (e.g., in Geography, Natural Resources, or elsewhere) depending on their interests.As Manitoba’s capital city, Winnipeg is an exciting place to study planning, and our Department draws on considerable expertise throughout the region. Our faculty members maintain close links to professional practitioners in Winnipeg, throughout Manitoba and across the country. Students have the opportunity to interact with the planning community and the Manitoba Professional Planners Institute (MPPI) through our mentorship programs and speaker series. We also cooperate with Brandon University's Rural Development Institute.
