The Cardinal Greenway. Chicago’s Navy Pier. Main Street in your hometown. What do they have in common? Planning!

Planners are communicators, problem solvers, and community organizers. They envision ways to improve the quality of life, preserve the environment, transport people, design neighborhoods, and encourage economic development.

A Master’s of Urban and Regional Planning could be right for you. Our program accepts – indeed, thrives on – the diversity of undergraduate degrees our students bring with them. Students in journalism, communications, history, political science, environmental sciences, and many other majors find themselves at home here. Most of our students have graduate assistantships either working in our department or with our partners in Muncie, Anderson, Carmel, Noblesville, and other cities.

Are there jobs for urban planners? Yes! The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts average job growth with a median salary of $65,000. We consider the Indiana job market to be a growing one as many cities and small towns are looking for strategies to attract more jobs and more families. Or you could work in the private or non-profit sector, putting your skills to use in assisting architecture and engineering firms as they design neighborhoods and blocks for redevelopment. Our program provides you with the hands-on experience through our studio classes and community-based projects.

Find more information about the Urban and Regional Planning master’s program by contacting Christine Rhine.

By attending this session, we will waive half of the cost of the $60 Ball State University Graduate School application fee. Once registered, you will receive more details about this offer.
