Urban Planning Concentration (U165)

The inter-regional shift of people and jobs in the United States and elsewhere over the past decades coupled with the movement away from large central cities has increased the need for formal urban and regional planning. Planners are needed in the private sector as well as in state and local governments to provide the appropriate kinds of economic and community development that will ensure a high quality of life in both developed and developing countries. In a growth region like the Southeast, geographers with a planning background are in increasing demand.

In addition to the core courses in geography listed above, students choosing this concentration are required to take:

  1. GEO 105, 301, 306
  2. Five courses from the following: GEO 302, 303, 304, 320, 322, 344, 357, 502, 522, 533
