Program Description:

The Department of City and Regional Planning is one of the largest, oldest, and best known programs of graduate planning education and research in North America. It was founded in 1946 to demonstrate the practical application of social science methods to problems of government, and it was the first planning program in the nation with its principal university base in the social sciences rather than in landscape design, architecture, or engineering. It has retained and strengthened that social science legacy while expanding the breadth and depth of its programs to include a full range of graduate planning study.
