The primary purpose of the Department of Urban and Regional Planning is to prepare qualified graduate students to become competent, creative, and effective practicing planners, whether to work in the fields of land use, growth management, environment, natural resources, economic development, housing, or social planning.

Although the department has no undergraduate program, several of the courses offered by the department's faculty members, as well as crosslisted courses in other departments, are open to undergraduate students in their junior and senior years. Some of these courses satisfy the requirements in social studies or humanities. The department also contributes to the accredited program in landscape architecture. The faculty of the department is available for counsel. For information on courses and programs, consult with the department.
