Undergraduate

The undergraduate program offers an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Science (SB) major designed to prepare students for careers in both the public and private sectors. The major also provides a foundation for students intending to do graduate work in law, public policy, development, urban design, management, and planning. The subjects in the major teach students the ways in which the tools of economics, policy analysis, political science, and design can be brought to bear on critical social and environmental problems in the US and abroad. In addition, students learn the special skills and responsibilities of planners who seek to promote efficient and equitable change. Students pursue one of the following tracks: urban and environmental policy and planning; urban society, history, and politics; or urban and regional public policy. The Department also offers a five-year combined SB/MCP degree, as well as minors in International Development, Public Policy and Urban Studies.
