Regional Planning

Housed in the Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning, the Regional Planning graduate programs aim to stimulate creative and systematic approaches for addressing and resolving the physical, economic, and social problems of towns, cities, and larger regions. 

The program is based on combining theoretical, historical, social, political, and technical dimensions of planning practice with strong emphasis on practice through studio and service to communities in our region, with opportunities for international work as well. 

LARP also offers an accelerated master's degree option, graduate certificates, and a variety of dual degree programs.
