Urban and Regional Planning Minor

College of Community Innovation and Education
School of Public Administration
Dr. Phillips Academic Commons (DPAC) - UCF Downtown, 446


Undergraduate Programs Director: Dr. Stephanie Krick

Urban and regional planning is one area of public administration that has seen considerable growth over the past few years. Areas like Central Florida need many professionals who assist government, communities, and private sector planning organizations to provide growth that is environmentally feasible, aesthetically attractive, socially and politically acceptable, technically sustainable, and economically dynamic. This minor looks at all of these diverse and competing interests, and provides the basics for those interested in employment in this area of great demand. Students who pursue a minor in urban and regional planning may find positions as a city planner, urban designer, planning specialist, environmental program manager, or economic development specialist, among others.
