Cultural Planning

UBC Certificate Program

Note: Applications to the UBC Certificate in Cultural Planning are currently on hold while we review the program. We continue to offer courses and workshops that make up the program's core curriculum.

Cultural planning is playing a vital role in building vibrant communities and propelling sustainable growth around the world. A growing international demand for professionals with the knowledge and expertise to advance cultural development has put cultural planners, policy makers, and administrators in the arts and cultural sector at the centre of this trend. By organizing and leveraging public and private policy affecting the cultural and creative sectors, those professionals advancing cultural planning and development play an increasingly important role in building livable, sustainable and intercultural communities.

The UBC Certificate in Cultural Planning addresses the growing demand for cultural planners with knowledge and expertise to guide cultural policy and development initiatives.
