This multidisciplinary major draws upon a wide range of urban-related disciplines to provide a solid foundation in the study and analysis of the physical, social, economic, and political factors that shape cities and regions, as well as the role of urban and regional planning in managing these dynamic forces of change. Students in this degree program also have the opportunity to declare a Concentration in Geographical Information Science (GIS).
