Student Achievement
While enrolled in our program, students develop conceptual and historical frameworks for understanding the roots of urban problems, and possible solutions. In addition to reviewing key facts of urban history and definitions of leading theories, our courses examine the role of planning and planners in addressing urban problems of inefficient resource allocation, spatial inequality, injustice, political exclusion, and environmental degradation—and the roles of planning and planners reproducing those problems. Upon graduating from our program, students will be able to apply what they have learned to explore the variety of roles that planners can have, the potential and limitations of these roles, and ways to achieve professionalism that incorporates a social justice perspective.
