Master of Community Planning + Master of Public Health

The dual degree with the School of Public Health (Master of Community Planning (MCP) and Master of Public Health (MHP) ) is designed to train future professionals with the expertise to create healthy and sustainable communities. A core element central to both community planning and public health is the built environment, which includes human-designed and built surroundings that provide the settings for all aspects of human life, ranging from buildings and homes to parks and recreation facilities. A well-planned community enhances public health, and the public’s health requires healthy facilities and a built environment that support and promote healthy living.
