Regional & Community Planning Program Offerings
Regional & Community Planners remake cities into dynamic places to live, work and play. Planners...

The Regional & Community Planning program focuses on the professional education of city and regional planners. Applying an integrated perspective on comprehensive planning, the program considers the influence of social, economic, cultural and political issues on the physical environment and policies of cities and regions. Regional & Community Planning students and faculty work to understand and improve the quality of life for people in neighborhoods, cities and regions across the world. Regional & Community Planning faculty and students are engaged in community assistance projects that allow students to practice the leadership skills important to their future practice. Planning students and faculty collaborate with those in the landscape architecture program, merging their complementary knowledge and skills to tackle natural and societal dilemmas.
We offer two tracks to the accredited Master of Regional and Community Planning degree, STEM CIP STEM CIP 30.3301 Sustainability Studies: a combined bachelor and master’s degree non-baccalaureate and a master’s degree (post-baccalaureate).
