Ball State University’s College of Architecture and Planning will offer a master of urban design program at its Indianapolis
campus, 50 S. Meridian St.
The 30-hour program can be completed in three semesters or one year.
Indianapolis will serve as an urban laboratory,
of sorts, helping students focus on learning how to design cities by understanding the past and anticipating
the future, said Michael Mounayar, associate dean of the CAP program.
The city is embarking on a number of infrastructure projects, including a sewer overflow tunnel project and environmental sustainability programs.
Students will study and have a chance to influence projects in areas including transit-oriented design, historic preservation and river corridor planning.
The Ball State CAP program is one of the oldest in the nation, having worked with more than 300 communities since it was founded in the 1960s.
