The Urban and Regional Planning curriculum is designed to provide a set of core studies and contextual projects that prepare the graduate for the practice of planning in public or private agencies at both national and international levels. The core studies include history and theory of planning; planning methods; and related studies in community and regional social, natural, and economic systems. Contextual projects include, among many subject areas, urban design, transportation, regional planning, community redevelopment and preservation, housing, real estate, and economic development. Interstate field trips are required as a part of the normal program curriculum. Students should plan to have adequate funds for field trips and for studio materials. The program emphasizes planning, policy, and design for the built and natural environments. Areas of specialized knowledge include land use and transportation, urban design, housing, community and economic development, information technologies for planning, and environmental planning. Students are also encouraged to take advantage of the interdisciplinary faculty, course offerings, and other resources available in the College of Design, Construction, and Planning and throughout the University.
