Urban Planning as an academic discipline is the study of how cities grow and change, and of the application of policy tools that can guide that towards a viable, resilient and healthy future. Students majoring in Urban Planning learn about the historical evolution of cities and of the discipline in a global perspective; the responsibilities of the profession, and how cities are planned and governed. They learn to critically consider a plurality of perspectives in envisioning future cities. Urban Planning students also learn essential skills such as plan making, policy analysis, and technical writing in both urban and regional contexts. Learning in the Urban Planning course is broad and interdisciplinary. Students develop the above skills and knowledge through a variety of pedagogical formats, including lectures, tutorials, , fieldworks, and problem-based studios. The city is the laboratory, and students will engage with fellow students from around the world.
