Urban and Regional Planning

The Urban and Regional Planning minor focuses on people, their environment and spatial issues emerging from their interaction. Space is a finite resource and we need to use it carefully, particularly in the Netherlands. An urban or regional planner considers the future use of space and concentrates primarily on the built environment. Societal changes constantly require spatial modifications. Planners work to ensure that spatial changes are implemented as effectively as possible.
