Accredited Degrees


The New Zealand Planning Institute supports programmes that foster links with fields of study allied to planning, so long as the core of planning knowledge and skills is maintained in a coherent fashion.

Diversity in planning programmes is encouraged so that specialist disciplinary knowledge becomes available to the planning profession (e.g. core knowledge and skills plus: remote sensing and geographic information systems, engineering geology, natural ecology, Maori language and culture, or social anthropology).
