The City & Regional Planning minor provides students with an interdisciplinary understanding of the science and art of city planning and its relationship with other environmental design professionals. The student is provided with an understanding of how growth and change affect the physical, social and economic aspects of the city. The minor helps the student understand the relationships among land use, transportation, housing and the environment. It includes courses that build skills in the preparation of plan documents, land use studies and environmental studies. Laboratory courses provide opportunities to get involved in community building and plan-making projects.

The minor is excellent preparation for students interested in gaining skills at creating visions of the future, participation in government and community organizations, and enhances skills in disciplines that have linkages with cities and the built and natural environments. It provides the student with the knowledge, skills and values that help people build better communities and cities.
