Massey’s Bachelor of Resource and Environmental Planning (BRP) is a unique degree that combines urban and natural resource planning.
A planning profession is a future-focused discipline that deals with the natural and human dimensions of the world around us. It is concerned with the diversity of our communities, productivity of our economy, and vitality of our natural systems.
You’ll study core planning courses. You’ll also take a minor in a related subject that meets your particular interests and aspirations.

Through our professional practice courses and active engagement with local and central government and private sector employers, you?ll gain experience that is in demand locally and globally across both public and private sectors.
Working as a planner will involve a wide range of skills and knowledge from many subject areas.
While subjects such as geography have direct links to planning, a number of other subjects may also be useful. For instance, if you have done language and communication-related courses, that will help with the consultation and writing plans that most planners get involved with. Equally, graphics will help you with the design aspects of planning and science will help you understand some of the ecological and geological aspects of planning. In other words, whatever you have done at school will help with some part of your planning degree.
The rest you will learn during the course of your BRP studies.
