What will you learn?
The programme offers two specialist tracks, called Urban and Regional Planning and Planning for the Global Agenda, which share the same teaching methods but have different objectives.
How will you learn it?
You will take single-discipline courses and Studios focused on drafting planning tools at different scale that will allow you to learn by doing.
You can choose to work on your thesis project and to do an internship abroad.
What you can do next
You will have plenty of career opportunities:
You will be able to work as a free-lance Territorial Planner, after passing the State Examination for Professional Practice and registering to the Association of Architects, Planners, LandscapeArchitects and Conservationists (section A).
You will be able to find a job in local and territorial authorities, professional firms, service companies, public and private agencies, research centres, in the service sector, in Italy and abroad.

Alternatively, you can continue your academic studies with a Specializing Master’s programme (for example, “Methods and techniques for governance of resilient territories”), with a interuniversity Ph.D. programme in Urban and Regional Development or you can enrol in the Postgraduate School “Beni architettonici e Paesaggio” and choose the educational path that best suits your attitude and interests.
