The objectives of the MCRP program are to prepare you for your first professional job and for a long-term career in planning. We believe that both aims can best be met by a program of study and simulated practice that combines theory and methods with substantive knowledge about planning, spatial development and public policy.
The doctoral program in planning provides training in urban and regional social theory and research methods that enable graduates to contribute to our understanding of urban and regional issues, to formulate and evaluate innovative public policy, and contribute to and manage research programs in domestic and international contexts. The program is highly selective and individualized.
Students in any department or curriculum at the University can elect the Minor in Urban Studies and Planning. The Minor is offered through the Department of City and Regional Planning and consists of five courses.
In this case we visited Assistant Professor Todd Bendor’s PLAN 641: Ecology and Land Use Planning.
Emphasis is placed on the connectivity between planning for natural hazards and disasters and climate change adaptation, emphasizing the principles of sustainability and disaster resilience.
Students in “PLAN 638: Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning” recently participated in an activity to demonstrate how pedestrian design elements and the built environment affect disabled individuals.
I invite you to take my Maymester course this year. It is a hands-on course designed for graduate and undergraduate students who want to learn more about real estate. You’ll gain skills that will help you make good housing choices. You’ll also learn how real estate development and investment decisions are made. In June, you’ll be impressed with the knowledge you have gained after three short weeks!
