Cities

Cities—how they function, what they mean for people’s lives, and the systems and policy areas—fundamentally shape the urban environment. As a student, you will learn about broad sets of analytical, policy, and management skills to inform infrastructure, design, and thoughtful planning. While our urban planning program delves into core education about cities, we have also woven these topics into each of our programs in order for Wagner graduates to form a deep understanding of urban environments.
