The Department offers accredited Masters degrees in Regional & Community Planning and in Landscape Architecture through five-year non-baccalaureate as well as traditional post-baccalaureate tracks, and we are recognized for our strong preparation of students for professional practice. The Department also supports the College’s interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Environmental Design and offers an online Masters of Science in Community Development degree through the Great Plains IDEA. Centers including the Urban Water Institute and the Kansas City Design Center offer opportunities for research and extend our reach in the region.
