Student Research

Added to the planning conversation

One of the proudest parts of submitting the culmination of one’s studies is to add it to the greater library of knowledge, at the UBC level and the worldwide discipline of planning.  

UBC Library’s digital repository, cIRcle, hosts a wealth of theses from our PhD and Research Masters students, as well as many of our MCRP graduates’ final projects.  

Graduate Projects 
PhD theses and dissertations

The UBC collection promotes open and comprehensive access to a significant body of unique knowledge created by graduate students to support further research and for private study. The authors retain copyright ownership and moral rights to their theses. The content of theses may not be re-purposed or exploited for commercial gain without the explicit permission of the authors. 

MCRP Studio Presentations

During SCARP’s Planning Studio, student teams partner with community, municipal, and private-sector organisations to identify problems and propose feasible solutions. Faculty support the students through all stages of project definition, analysis, revision and delivery. Even so, the Planning Studio represents the culmination of the knowledge and expertise MCRP students have learned during their program, and their potential for innovative solutions as professional planners.
