Urban and Regional Planning - 5-Year Bachelor of Science and Master of Urban Planning

The undergraduate core is designed to equip students with knowledge and skills to deal effectively with the opportunities and challenges inherent in the development, growth and culture of neighborhoods, cities, and regions, is based on theoretical training in the natural, physical, and social sciences. Students acquire skills that enable them to apply these theories to develop communities, cities, and regions which are safe, healthy, and sustainable. While still completing undergraduate credits, students begin graduate coursework in urban planning to refine and extend their skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication, leading to an accredited professional degree appropriate for planning positions in the public sector, private consulting, or the non-profit world.
