Rural Communities and Planning Programs

The concept of community is complex. Starting, engaging, and stabilizing a community, including its buildings and people, requires a diverse skill set. Every community presents its own unique challenges and opportunities. Postgraduate degrees offered through the OAC allow students to critically examine communities and offer solutions to the issues they face using a broad range of theories and approaches.
