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. Our program fosters a unique multidisciplinary approach to problem-solving in order to affect quality of life in communities and regions in the U.S. and world-wide. Students have an opportunity to specialize in specific aspects of community and regional planning and development issues along with internship and service-learning experiences locally, nationally, and/or internationally.
The BS-URPN Program is based in the Department of Landscape Architecture & Urban Planning (LAUP), within the College of Architecture at Texas A&M University. This Department offers five other degree programs: Bachelors of Landscape Architecture, Masters of Landscape Architecture, Masters of Urban Planning, Masters of Land Development, and Ph.D. in Urban and Regional Science.
Students in the BSURPN are prepared for careers in planning and planning-related fields as well as to pursue graduate studies in planning and allied disciplines:
