Environmental Planners are concerned with the physical environment in its built and natural dimensions. They work closely with environmental scientists and engineers to ensure the ecological integrity of air, water, and biodiversity in cities, towns, and regions. Environmental planners are called upon to develop resiliency plans and plans for green infrastructure to help communities and regions address threats associated with climate change.  Through all these activities environmental planners must work closely with communities to ensure equity, public participation, and representation.

Through the Environmental Planning Concentration students develop expertise in a range of issues, theories, and techniques for supporting sustainable outcomes at a variety of scales. Abundant opportunities for internships, field research, and community-based projects enable students to put their classroom experiences into practice. Many Environmental Planning students double major in Environmental Science, adding an even more robust background in the natural sciences and increasing their job possibilities.
