Small Town, Urban, & Regional Planning


Geographers bring a uniquely valuable combination of skills and knowledge to the challenge of planning the places where people live and work. Our majors have gotten jobs in planning in large cities and small towns alike. See a list of job titles and employers for our graduates here. There is more information about geography careers available from the Association of American Geographers here. Open the link and look under “Urban and Regional Planning” for ideas.
