Urban Studies and Planning, B.S.


Cities depend on transportation, housing, water, power, waste management and other forms of infrastructure.  Urban studies students will study all aspects of urban development and sustainability, including neighborhood revitalization, housing, transportation, local economic development, cultural preservation, environmental planning and sustainable communities.

What can I do with this degree?
Students who complete the program seek entry-level positions in public, private, and non-profit sector organizations.  They will also be prepared for urban and environmental professional or scholarly graduate degree programs in Urban Studies, Urban Planning, or related disciplines such as Public Administration and Transportation.  By design, the program integrates well with the graduate programs in those fields offered at UNO. Over 90% of all Planning and Urban Studies graduates are employed within the first year.  Graduates earn an average of $57,000 per year.
