The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Planning (BSEP), offered by the College of Architecture, Design, and the Built Environment (CADBE), is a straight Bachelor’s-Master’s (BS-MS) degree program that intends to prepare students to become professional and ethical Environmental Planners with creative, critical, and proactive mindset. They will be equipped with the ability to analyze and resolve environmental problems, critique and formulate environmental and planning policies, and adapt to evolving technology in order to develop sustainable communities and ecosystems. Graduates will also be prepared to create holistic solutions, and to lead and communicate with stakeholders in classifying, evaluating, harmonizing, managing, and regulating the sustainable use and development of land and water resources.
General education, technical, non-academic, and planning are among the courses offered by the program to prepare students to become the next generation of environmental planners. The program objectives shall be met through coursework that exposes the students to research projects in the early year levels, as well as to urban design, environmental impact assessments, transportation planning, economics, and the development of policies and planning documents in the higher-year levels. Furthermore, students can gain practical experience through internships, group projects, and community-based projects and research.
After the students obtain their four-year bachelor’s degree, they have the option to continue to the one-year master’s degree where they can have the opportunity for further learning the creation and application of Comprehensive Land Use Plans (CLUP), Comprehensive Development Plans (CDP), and Zoning Ordinances (ZO).
