Community & Regional Planning (Minor Only)
Community and regional planning is an interdisciplinary field that influences a broad range of future-oriented decision making. A minor in community and regional planning will be useful for students who wish to pursue careers related to planning or who wish to pursue graduate study in community and regional planning. Majors that are related to planning include architecture, landscape architecture, anthropology, economics, environmental studies, ethnic studies, geography, geology, Great Plains studies, political science, and sociology, among others. Many professional positions in public, private, and nonprofit organizations involve knowledge and skills in community and regional planning.
The University of Nebraska–Lincoln offers the master of community and regional planning (MCRP) degree program, which prepares students for professional planning practice. Requirements for the MCRP degree program are detailed in the Graduate Studies Catalog. Completion of CRPL 400 Introduction to Planning in the minor fulfills the course content requirement of CRPL 800 Introduction to Planning for the MCRP degree; however, students pursuing the MCRP degree must still complete 48 credit hours at the graduate level.
