During your first year of study, you will take several core courses that will build the foundation for courses in your later years.
The urban planning curriculum is a sequence of courses in history and theory of planning, presentation techniques, private development, quantitative methods, planning law, and planning issues, coupled with a sequence of planning studios.
Studio courses are used to challenge you to develop skills and a knowledge base for solving problems in creative and environmentally sound ways. The studios in this program progress from site analysis at the regional and site-specific level to data collection and manipulation at the county and neighborhood level to applied field studios addressing real projects involving actual community settings and clients.
The core also includes a block of required courses offered outside of the College of Architecture and Planning in the economics, political science, sociology, natural resources and geography departments.
