Urban planning is a diverse, interconnected field. It will call you to solve complex problems as you help shape communities into sustainable, empowering places to live, work, and play. You’ll consider history, ecology, law, and economics as you navigate relationships and policies that influence place.

Our program—the only one of its kind in Indiana—will outfit you with the expertise, confidence, and connections to build a successful, fulfilling career. We’re a supportive, expert community focused on sustainability, innovation, and hands-on, relevant learning. Both the BUPD and the MURP degrees are accredited through 2022.
