Bachelor of Arts | Bachelor of Science in Urban Ecology

The undergraduate program in urban ecology is a pre-professional degree that provides an academic foundation for developing a career in understanding, analyzing, and planning the urban and small town environment. For those seeking work at the graduate level, it also provides preparation for the Master of City & Metropolitan degree.

The program is designed to respond to the particular problems and opportunities that exist in the “new west.” These might be characterized as environmental management, fragile landscape protection, recreation and tourism, public lands planning, rapid population growth, rural towns, regional transportation, energy production and low density sprawl. These issues are very similar to problems in developing third-world cities. These needs are not usually addressed in traditional urban planning programs currently available in other states.

The program is an open major at the undergraduate level.
