The Urban Affairs and Planning (UAP) program serves the university, students, and society through its instruction, research, and outreach activities in urban planning and public policy. The program applies an interdisciplinary, comparative, and applied approach to instruction and research in its two undergraduate degrees (B.A. in Public and Urban Affairs and B.S. in Environmental Policy and Planning), masters in Urban and Regional Planning (MURP), and doctoral program. The curricula of these programs rest on the premise that no single discipline or approach can explain the complexities of modern communities. In UAP, faculty with expertise in economics, geography, history, sociology, political science, planning, law, and engineering all work together to provide students with a coherent vision of how communities work and how to facilitate positive changes within them.
