Focus Areas

Urban and Regional Planning Focus Areas

The Urban and Regional Planning Program offers focus areas to help master's students gain depth in a specific area of the broad field of urban and regional planning. Students may choose to specialize in one focus area or may selectively choose electives from across two or more focus areas to create their own specialization.

In all focus areas, courses listed as “Primary Courses” provide a majority or more of the material directed toward the focus area, “Secondary Courses” provide a smaller share of course material on the focus area, and “Non-URP courses are offered in other units on campus.
