Information for students in the final 100 points of the Master of Urban Planning.
ABPL90384 MUP Studio is a stand-alone 25 point studio subject. It can be taken by students who began their Master of Urban Planning prior to 2020 as their core capstone, or by all other Master of Urban Planning students as an urban planning elective.
This subject provides an opportunity to those students who would like to sharpen the skills necessary to work in a team addressing practical planning problems. MUP Studio offerings are all designed according to the MUP Studio Handbook description, but will each be led by different studio leaders, and will each focus on different studio themes.
The following studio in ABPL90384 MUP Studio will be offered in Semester 2, 2023:
MSD Minor Thesis
ABPL90396/7 MSD Minor Thesis is the core capstone in the Master of Urban Planning. This subject offers students the opportunity to explore a research topic of their choosing under the guidance of an academic supervisor. The subject involves two consecutive semester-long 12.5 point subjects, totaling 25 points. In the initial semester students will concentrate on the preliminary stages of research, with the following semester more focused on the development and refinement of their chosen project.
Your supervisor will be your academic mentor: the person who guides your research and academic development throughout the year. Your supervisor will give feedback about your work and provide support and encouragement.
Below is a list of urban planning staff showing their availability to supervise and their supervision interests. After enroling in ABPL90396 MSD Minor Thesis, you will be asked to nominate your area of study, and you will be allocated one of these staff members as a supervisor.
In addition, other academic staff within the Melbourne School of Design may also be available to undertake supervision on a one-on-one basis.
