Class Details

This interdisciplinary course introduces the theories, methodologies, and legal framework of environmental planning and provides students with experience in the planning process through project work in the Berkshire region. The first part of the course introduces the students to planning literature through analysis and discussion of case studies. In the second section of the course students apply their skills to the study of an actual planning problem. Small teams of students, working in conjunction with a client in the community, research and propose solutions to a local environmental planning problem. The project work draws on students’ academic training, extracurricular activities, and applies interdisciplinary knowledge and methodologies. The course culminates in public presentations of each team’s planning study. This course also includes field trips and computer labs.
