Salisbury University has added a new bachelor's degree for its students.

Starting Fall 2017, the campus will offer a degree in Urban and Regional Planning.

"This program gives students an opportunity to shape the future of our communities, states, the nation and, ultimately, the planet," said Dr. Amal K. Ali, program director and faculty in Salisbury University's Geography and Geosciences Department. "They will learn principles, models and techniques that professional planners use to create sustainable development and improve the quality of life."

 

University officials say there is a growing need for planning professionals with both the U.S. and Maryland Departments of Labor. The agencies predict increases in urban planning jobs within the next five to ten years.

Courses will cover topics including environmental planning, urban theory, and global development and sustainability.

The degree will fall under Salisbury University's Geography and Geosciences Department.
