Community and Regional Planning

The College of Architecture, through its department of community and regional planning, offers a number of undergraduate courses at UNO to serve the area’s professional planners, governmental officials, interested citizens and students in related programs. These are evening courses intended primarily for people who wish to pursue their studies while employed full time. These courses are not part of an undergraduate degree program.

The program does offer a Masters of Community and Regional Planning (MCRP) degree at UNL. Some graduate courses may be taken at UNO as partial completion of these degree requirements. Please refer to the graduate catalog for more information.

Planning is an interdisciplinary problem-solving profession that influences a broad range of future-oriented decision making. Planners work with individuals, groups and organizations to formulate plans, policies and strategies through which desired change can be achieved. Planners utilize a wide variety of methods and techniques to identify problems and needs and to formulate plans of action that effectively address those needs. Planners often need to accommodate differing viewpoints in the process of formulating desirable and compatible plan and policy recommendations.
