The MSc in Urban and Regional Planning programme is driven by the need to produce a cadre of planning professionals with a tailored education and training in Caribbean planning issues, which are distinct from other regions of the world by virtue of population dynamics, economic evolution, social problems and unique physical environment. The programme focuses on the evolution of theoretical perspectives on planning, especially with a developing country planning epistemology. It aims to equip the graduate with the knowledge associated with policy planning, strategic and development planning, physical planning and design, as well as development control in areas of development relevant to the Caribbean region.
