The City & Regional Planning Program at the Ohio State University has been educating planners for over 60 years, and offers a PhD program, accredited Master’s and Bachelor’s programs, and online distance education courses for professionals. In our courses, we teach the traditional subjects of city and regional planning: transportation and infrastructure, land use and zoning, economic and community development, participatory planning, environmental impact, regional economic analysis and all the tools of city and regional planning. However, we also continuously update and adapt our courses to reflect how the planning profession evolves over time, such as teaching about mobility, resilience, sustainability, green building, inclusion, equity, and future cities. So when you take one of our courses, you will find that we have an optimistic and aspirational view of what cities and communities are, and what they can be. We see the possibility of sustainable and equitable cities enabled through deliberate, intentional, and inclusive urban planning. We encourage everyone to learn the tools of urban planning with us and learn the set of interventions that are unique to the city planning discipline from our nationally and internationally recognized, award-winning faculty.
