Graduate Student Work
We are proud to highlight the independent and original research our graduate students undertake guided by their supervisory committees. They engage in contemporary urban planning issues, apply theoretical frameworks to local contexts, cast a critical gaze on policies, programs and plans, and explore opportunities for new urban design strategies. Theoretical clarity, clear research questions, solid reviews of the literature, empirical work and creative analysis are hallmarks of their exploratory work. Ultimately, our graduate students contribute new knowledge to the planning field, give back to the communities with whom they engage, and help to push the boundaries of planning practice and theorizing.


City Planning major degree projects include both thesis and practicums.


The Case-in-Points archived here are the products of collaborative case study research, by each student and a professional practitioner, conducted within the context of the capstone Professional Planning Practice course. Especially notable Cases-in-Point are recognized through a Manitoba Professional Planners Institute (MPPI) Awards Program.
