Community and Environmental Planning: An Overview
From Sarah Schaier
Community and environmental planning is about making our communities better places to live, work and play. Students in the community and environmental planning program do more than sit in a classroom. Through an interactive and dynamic curriculum that includes outreach work, students develop a solid foundation in the basic principles of community planning and critical related topics such as natural resources, economics and political science and apply their knowledge in the real world through the program’s internship requirement. Students also have the opportunity to participate in the Semester in the City program in Boston, a rigorous 30+ hour per week internship with a leading social change organization designed to equip a new generation of leaders dedicated to the public good.
