Thread: Anyone know about Dalhousie University's Planning program??

    Anyone know about Dalhousie University's Planning program??

    I am currently in a graduate certificate program (for Real Estate Development) at Portland State University, and was planning on applying their for my master's (MURP) as well. However, my fiance just found out that he has a good chance of doing his post-doc (Molecular Biology) in a lab at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I had never heard of it, but upon browsing their site, found out that they have a Master's of Planning program, which got me really excited!

    Has anyone gone through this program, or know anything about it and its reputation?

    Thanks!

    Went through it ages ago before a big departmental shake up. It had it ups and downs then but as I understand it many of my concerns have been dealt with through the reorganization of the program and the addition of faculty. I haven't been without work since I graduated - although I have moved around a bit - as much by my own choice as work related. As with anything, you get what you want out of it and for me the key was a great summer co-op job.

    Halifax is a great small city - there is some great music coming out here and we are even starting to get some big names doing concerts here.

    Have you looked at the Canadian Institue of Planning listing of Recognized University Programs:

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
