Planning specialization offers an opportunity for students to focus on the
protection of environmental assets and natural resources. In the public sector, graduates with an
environmental planning concentration often work at the state, regional, or
federal level where that type of specialization is more common. A number of former students work for
environmental consulting firms or land conservation organizations.
Elective courses are taken both within the department and across campus to strengthen natural science and technical areas. CRP 841 Introduction to Environmental Planning is the overview course for this specialization. Students in consultation with their advisor select electives to build both a depth and breadth of understanding to address natural resource issues.
