About this Degree
The Division of Regional and City Planning at the University of Oklahoma seeks to become a place of belonging and personal growth for our students, faculty, alumni, and the regional professionals with which we work. RCPL students have access to a low student-faculty ratio and small classroom sizes to tailor courses of study to student interests.
The Division’s focus on communication and experience prepares graduates for the collaborative work of successful planning professionals with an emphasis on diversity and inclusion of those often underrepresented in planning.
What is Planning?
Planning professionals work for various levels of government, nonprofits, as well as for profit developers and companies. Regional and City Planning is a diverse field appealing to those with interests in community development, economic development, environmental planning, public health, hazard mitigation, historic preservation, housing, parks and recreation, transportation, urban design, and others. What unites the diverse field of urban planning is the goal of working with communities, residents, and leaders to anticipate and meet the needs of a changing world.
