Urban and Regional Planning from Queen's University allows our students to develop the knowledge and skills they require to become leaders in the planning field and to meet the challenges of a rapidly evolving urban environment.


At Urban and Regional Planning from Queen's University you will work closely with our faculty, staff and graduate students in a close-knit and collegial environment. Our two-year MPL program is an intensive residential experience with much teamwork, active learning and real-world projects. Your degree can specialize in Environmental Services; Health & Social Planning; or Land Use & Real Estate.


About half of SURP graduates work in the public sector, with policy agencies at the federal and provincial levels or as planners at local and regional governments. Perhaps a third of our MPL graduates work in the private sector, as planning consultants or in the real estate industry. Other graduates work with non-profit agencies, NGOs or continue to doctoral studies.
