Department of Urban Planning

About the Department

The UCLA Department of Urban Planning is at the intersection of unique academic, regional, geographic, and professional resources that creates a learning environment unlike any other. Los Angeles, one of the most culturally diverse and exciting urban settings in the world, serves as a unique laboratory for faculty and students to study and solve urban issues and problems. The world-class faculty in the department—nationally and internationally recognized scholars and leaders in community development, environmental planning, housing, land development, regional and international development, transportation, and urban design—prepare master’s and doctoral degree students to address the social, economic, and spatial relationships that shape society.
