  • Urban and Regional Planning

    Society's demands on the natural environment continue to increase as communities grow to meet population demands. Planning addresses the interface between the social, environmental and economic dimensions of communities and regions. Never before has the need to shape visions and guide community outcomes been greater.

    The urban and regional planning minor introduces the challenging and vital aspects of creating, improving, and sustaining communities and regions.

    About this Minor
