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.
