Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning

Course Offerings

Fall 2021

UEP classes noted as 'Hybrid' will include in-person instruction and will also be accessible to virtual learners as needed. Courses may convene synchronously (at the scheduled time), asynchronously (not at the same time), or a combination of both. Accommodations will be made for students unable to participate in the scheduled sessions. If you have any questions about how a specific course will be conducted, please contact the instructor.
