About Us

Sustainability, health care, immigration, urban development, and social policy: these are just a few of the modern challenges that call on a few generation of thinkers to explore beyond the status quo and craft innovative solutions to help their communities thrive.


With the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy, students can prepare themselves to serve their communities—local and global—at the highest level of excellence.

As an online Executive Master of Urban Planning student, you will build fundamental knowledge in four areas: project and land economics; urban design and the built environment; political, legal, and regulatory process and stakeholder outreach; and data analysis and communication. You will graduate equipped to be a leader in this growing field.


Why Urban Planning?


Urban planners lay the foundation for our everyday lives. By designing and adapting urban infrastructure, building for environmental sustainability, and analyzing public needs, they shape our cities’ futures—and, in turn, the ease with which we interact with our surroundings and are able to thrive in the places in which we live.

Some specific duties of a leader in the urban planning field include:


  • negotiating between public objectives and private sector constraints
  • planning, designing, and implementing major public works and development projects
  • convening multiple stakeholders to develop innovative planning solutions
  • leading teams from project initiation to execution
  • analyzing data from market research, censuses, and economic and environmental studies to craft innovative plans and development proposals
