Regional Planning

The graduate programs in Regional Planning allow you to integrate studies of the physical, environmental, social, cultural, economic, and political facets of planning at all scales and densities: urban, suburban, small town, and rural. The practice-oriented M.R.P. degree prepares you for a professional career promoting sustainable development as the balance of ecology, economy, and equity achieved through a participatory planning process. The research-based Ph.D. is ideal if you are interested in a career in academia or in research roles in public agencies or private organizations.
