Construction Planning and Management Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by School

This program covers the most current theories and practice of construction planning and management. The program provides a valuable adjunct credential to professional school students pursuing careers in business administration, public administration, architecture, environmental studies, and other areas; and a unique opportunity for professional focus to students in the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.

Construction activities are complex. In contemporary society, effective planning and management of these activities requires specialized knowledge of the technical, economic and policy environment. This program couples the knowledge of how construction activities are organized with a broader understanding of the urban system in which construction projects are embedded. With the exception of statistics, all of the required courses are within the Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the USC Price School of Public Policy.

Any USC undergraduate who has completed the equivalent of two full-time semesters in good standing is eligible to pursue the minor program. This minor program is rigorous enough to serve as an introductory credential for students subsequently electing to pursue advanced studies in development, urban planning, construction management, architecture or allied fields.

Six courses consisting of at least 22 units are required for the minor.

Total Units: 22


Advisement is provided by the Astani Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Students electing FBE, PPD, or RED courses from the themes or electives must satisfy the prerequisites. Please see the Price School and Marshall School section or schedule of classes for the prerequisites.
