- Introduction to the Profession
Urban planning , also known as regional planning , town planning , city planning , or rural planning , is a technical and political process that is focused on the development and design of land use and the built environment, including air, water, and the infrastructure passing into and out of urban areas , such as transportation , communications , and distribution networks and their accessibility. Sustainable development was added as one of the main goals of all planning endeavors in the late 20th century when the detrimental economic and the environmental impacts of the previous models of planning had become apparent. Similarly, in the early 21st century, Jane Jacob 's writings on legal and political perspectives to emphasize the interests of residents, businesses and communities effectively influenced urban planners to take into broader consideration of resident experiences and needs while planning.

Urban and regional planning is essential to the development of the communities around us — especially in and around cities and densely populated areas. People in these roles are responsible for developing policies and systems that create the physical and economic infrastructure that supports diverse and growing populations. In doing this, they must effectively manage resources and plan for current and future needs of the population. A certificate program is one way to get the necessary training to be able to do this. And good news: As an urban and regional planner, your job outlook will be positive for years to come.

This book discusses urban planning and regional development practices in the twentieth century, and ways in which they are currently being transformed. It addresses questions such as: What are the factors affecting planning dynamics at local, regional, national and global scales? With the push to adopt a market paradigm in land development and infrastructure, the relationship between resource management, sustainable development and the role of governance has been transformed. Centralized planning is giving way to privatization, not only in the traditional regions but also in newly emerging regions of Asia, Africa and Latin America. Further, attempts are being made to bring planning related decision-making closer to the people who are most affected by it.

Jump to navigation Skip to content. Planning is a profession dedicated to helping society manage change. Planners work in cities and regions to guide growth and development, enhance communities, and improve the quality of life.

Introduction to the Profession
The profession of Urban and Regional Planning encompasses all aspects of the development of human settlements, including the use of land, protection of the environment, economic productivity, and the future allocation of physical and social public resources. Planning's initial concern with the form and structure of cities continues, but it has grown to include all aspects of the formulation and implementation of public policy, at all levels of society. Today, the field is a diverse one, incorporating the many issues developed over the past decades and expanding to include new areas of concern.
The Master of City Planning degree requires completion of 18 course units, including course requirements from the core curriculum and one of six concentration areas. In addition, all students must complete a non-credit planning internship between the first and second years of study. Students who complete the core will understand the legal and historical basis of city planning; they will know how to use a wide variety of population and economic data to understand local communities; and they will understand the form and arrangement of cities and metropolitan areas around the world. Most important, they will understand which planning approaches work best in which contexts and circumstances. The core includes two hands-on opportunities for students to engage real planning problems in real communities for real clients. It gives students the opportunity to scope out a planning problem for themselves, design the appropriate planning process, and then, pursue that process to its conclusion.
