Why study the Graduate Certificate in Regional Development?

Regional development is the study of regions and processes of regional change. The postgraduate programs in regional development encourage the creation of tools, methods and theories of regional analysis, from concepts and techniques of component disciplines such as economics; geography; government; sociology; engineering; agriculture; regional and town planning; and environmental science. Graduates possess a theoretical and applied knowledge of regional, political and planning issues, allowing work in central government, regional organisations, private consultancies, or as a prelude to higher degree studies.
