The City and Regional Planning  (dual degree) offered at Cornell University, is a professionally accredited degree intended for students with an interest in both planning and design issues.


Landscape architecture (LA) students from Cornell University, interested in the social, political, and economic context in which design occurs, or planning students who want to establish a deeper concentration in physical design and planning than the existing planning curriculum can provide, are ideal candidates for the dual degree program. 


The City and Regional Planning  (dual degree) prepares students for work in areas such as physical planning, environmental analysis, community development, and urban design — skills which are highly sought after in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.
