We also offer a bachelors of arts in
urban policy and planning. An urban policy and planning degree is a really
exciting opportunity for students that may have a variety of interest areas,
whether it’s in policy, geography, environmental science, to utilize their
creativity, their analytical thinking to really help us think about how we design
our communities in which we live, the spaces that we enjoy, our parks and open
space, our infrastructure, how we get around communities. They really learn
the fundamental skill set of how to create and design the communities of
today and tomorrow. Students that pursue a degree in urban
policy and planning really have a wide range of career opportunities. They could
work for city government, state or federal government, they could also work
for private consulting firms or private developers, or even pursue an avenue of
economic development. They may specialize and consider areas of land use,
transportation, environment, water, sustainability and even climate change.
What’s really exciting is that students that pursue the bachelors of arts in
urban policy and planning or a bachelors of science in nonprofit leadership
studies is that it sets them up perfectly to pursue a masters of public
administration.
