City & Regional Planning

Curriculum

The Master of City and Regional Planning students pursue a 48-credit hour program.

Since late Fall 2005, the program has focused its energy on developing two concentrations. These are "Urban Design and Sustainable Cities" and "Transportation and Infrastructure Planning." The first specialization will draw from graduate programs in Architecture and Landscape Architecture, as well as the City and Regional Planning program in terms of specialized courses and faculty expertise. The second will draw from courses and faculty expertise of the Graduate Transportation Program in the School of Engineering. We are considering developing new electives as well as revising our old electives to cater to these specializations. The effort has already been initiated and is expected to take a definite shape by Fall 2008.
