Bachelor of Science in Urban and Regional Planning

Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Urban & Regional Planning (BS-URPN) was established in 2007 to equip students with skills needed to analyze and develop solutions to the growth and development issues facing communities across the state of Texas, the nation, and globally. The program emphasizes the social, economic, cultural and natural forces that govern how communities and society are shaped. It fosters a unique multidisciplinary approach to problem-solving to treat adverse conditions in communities and regions. Students have an opportunity to specialize in specific aspects of community and regional planning, experience internships, and take part in service-learning projects which have real impacts.

Students in the BS-URPN program are well prepared for careers in planning and related fields as well as to pursue graduate studies in planning and allied disciplines:
