Top 10 Planning Schools


james brasuell

It’s the Season 2 finale and periodically, Planetizen releases their guide and review of the nation’s planning schools. The thorough evaluation gives prospective students and professionals fabulous and informed insight, all organized to help make a decision. Our friend James Brasuell, stopped by to talk about the guide and reveal their top 10 list and more. 


Planning is the professional practice and academic study of the future of built and natural environments—from the smallest towns to the largest cities and everything in between.

Plan-et-iz-en combines Plan, as in planning, and Netizen, as in a citizen of the Internet, to produce “Planetizen.” The Planetizen team pronounces the name like plan-NET-a-zen. Planetizen isn’t found in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, so feel free to pronounce the name however it suits you.

James Brasuell is the Editorial Director of Planetizen. James was also a guest in Season 1 of The Planning Commission Podcast – find the episode here.
