The Urban Planning programs offer both undergraduate and graduate degrees in urban and regional planning. Both degree programs are professionally accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board.urban and regional planning, urban planning, regional planning, planning, urban

accredited by the Planning Accreditation BoardMany social, physical, economic, technical and political issues in society cry out for definition and resolution. Among these are:

  • The decline in central cities;
  • The deterioration of neighborhoods;
  • Inefficient and inequitable taxing and regulatory policies;
  • Congestion and other problems of accessibility;
  • The impact of growth and change;
  • An erosion of natural resources; and
  • Inefficient or absent human services.

Urban and Regional Planning is one of society's means for addressing these problems in a creative, positive manner. Planning is a problem-solving profession that is concerned with the forces that influence the quality of life in the neighborhood, city, region, state, nation and world. Thus, planning provides a unique occupational avenue for those who desire a role in shaping a better future.

The goal of EWU's Urban and Regional Planning program is to train competent professionals for careers in planning. To achieve this goal, the department stresses the acquisition of practical, analytical and organizational skills designed to aid the student in analyzing problems and organizing community activities to help solve problems. 

The combination of classroom instruction and applied planning field projects develops professional competence and ensures that each student has the requisite abilities to function within the profession after leaving the program. The department takes particular pride in having the only accredited undergraduate planning degree in the Northwest and one of only 16 in the nation.
