The University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati State Technical and Community College are offering a new transfer program leading to two degrees in the urban planning field.
Under the new agreement, students who earn an associate of arts degree in pre-urban professions at Cincinnati State will be guaranteed admission to the UC School of Planning's Bachelor of Urban Planning program.
At Cincinnati State, students will take a co-op experience program introducing them to the urban planning profession. They also will be able to co-enroll at UC for introductory and skill courses in urban planning.
After completing their associate degrees at Cincinnati State, students can take a bachelor's degree program in urban planning at UC that includes general and specialized courses; studio courses involving real-world projects in a team setting; and co-op work experience.
Areas of specialization at UC include urban design, economic development, environmental planning, historic preservation, housing and community development, international planning, and land use and zoning.
UC's School of Planning, part of the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, is the only urban planning program in the country that requires a co-op education experience.
Additional information about the combined Cincinnati State-UC program can be obtained by calling Cincinnati State at 513-569-1616 or UC's School of Planning at 513-556-4943.
