University at Buffalo
Department of Urban and Regional Planning
Study in Buffalo is distinctive, because we engage you in our city and region. In your studies with us, you become involved with city governments and neighborhood groups, urban and rural environments, citizens and leaders, and the challenges they face: both troubling problems and fascinating opportunities. We do this through class exercises, internships or independent study, and final thesis or project, and especially through our client-based workshops, which we call “studios.”
