Curriculum in Community and Regional Planning

Leading to the degree bachelor of science. Total credits required: 128.5. Curriculum is planned for students preparing to enter the professions of planning, engaging with the breadth and depth of the profession. Students have the opportunity to work with their faculty advisers to define their own areas of interest, which may include a minor.

Entry into the Community and Regional Planning professional program takes place in two ways: successful completion of one year of preprofessional coursework in the College of Design, or transfer from another curricula or accredited institution. In either case, predictors of success in the program include the quality of prior work and interest in the field. Community and Regional Planning emphasizes responsibility and citizenship, writing and analytical ability, and critical thinking. Students entering the CRP professional program from outside the College of Design should expect to fulfill the requirements of the first year preprofessional College of Design course work or its equivalent and subsequent review.
