The Master of Urban Design was an opportunity to further my passion and build upon my particular interest and previous research in preventing crime through urban design. What I enjoy most is being able to connect with experienced professionals in the industry on a daily basis and having access to a variety of sources.Marc Tarca, Master of Urban Design
