University of California Los Angeles
Department of Urban Planning
Luskin School of Public Affairs
The UCLA Department of Urban Planning is at the intersection of unique academic, regional, geographic, and professional resources that creates a learning environment unlike any other. Los Angeles, one of the most culturally diverse and exciting urban settings in the world, serves as a unique laboratory for faculty and students to study and solve urban issues and problems. The world-class faculty in the department—nationally and internationally recognized scholars and leaders in community development, environmental planning, housing, land development, regional and international development, transportation, and urban design—prepare master’s and doctoral degree students to address the social, economic, and spatial relationships that shape society.
School of Environmental Design
Department of Community and Regional Planning
Community development as a field embraces both citizen activists and professionals in planned efforts to identify, enhance, and create social and physical assets that increase the capacity of residents to improve their quality of life. Community development focuses on grass roots, community-based initiatives, complimenting the field of Community and Regional Planning, which is often more policy driven and government sponsored.
