If this is your first time pursuing education in planning, you can take our first professional degree track. This two-year program is also for nontraditional students who have already been in the workforce.
During your first year, you can expect to take core courses
that provide a foundation in the field, planning history and theory, legal issues, presentation techniques, and research methods. A land analysis and site-planning studio will introduce you to typical planning problems in a context of group interaction and presentation.
The second-year courses include further methods courses and two studios, one on comprehensive planning and one on special topics. To gain real-life experience, you will find the second year studios increasingly emphasize interaction with real-world clients. Electives in planning and related fields allow you to pursue your individual interests in planning, though the emphasis is always on creating a well-prepared generalist planner rather than a specialist
