The Territory Planning and Management Program aims to train professionals and researchers who will contribute to the gradual transformation of the culture of planning and territorial management towards a praxis that, at the same time, recognizes the presence of conflicts, the complexity of agendas and the historical inheritances of the pattern of development. It seeks to stimulate the approach of the territorial problems starting from a treatment that privileges the dialogue between the different disciplinary traditions, the interlocution with different actors of the spatial dynamics and of the planning, the critical and reflexive perspective supported by solid scientific knowledge and in ethical commitment.

Its faculty is formed by professors who attend to the multidisciplinary thematic that the approach in the area demands. Likewise, the program is interested in receiving graduates of different academic backgrounds and professional experiences, interested in deepening knowledge in planning and managing the territory. In view of this, it seeks to offer approaches that allow the student to have references of different readings of the territory, strengthening a reflexive and critical vision.
