The third- and fourth-year vertical Landscape Architecture studio is eager to travel to Red Cloud this Thursday and Friday to kick-off their “real project” - the development of a regional heritage tourism plan.

INTERIOR DESIGN
It was recently brought to my attention, that some of you may not be aware that there is an opportunity to pursue a graduate degree with a specialization in interior design. No matter if you are a 2nd year student thinking about potential paths one can take as you navigate your interest or a 4th year student considering an advanced degree or pursuing a professional focus, I think it is important to be aware of the MS-ID program here in the College as an option for your future.

COMMUNITY AND REGIONAL PLANNING

Dr. Daniel Piatkowski, Assistant Professor of Community and Regional Planning, is beginning his second semester in the Master of Community and Regional Planning (MCRP) program. Dan is bringing transportation planning expertise to the program, both in his teaching, as well as in his research. He taught a new elective course, “Introduction to Transportation Planning,” during fall semester. Open to students from multiple disciplines, the course attracted, among several planning students and others, five master’s degree students who are pursuing the transportation specialization in UNL’s Department of Civil Engineering. We are very pleased to see this type of multidisciplinary participation in MCRP courses. More-

ARCHITECTURE
The Architecture program is pleased to announce a new “Architectural Studies”  minor, available to all UNL undergraduate students. The minor provides an introduction to architecture through required courses in the history and theory of architecture and a range of elective courses in environmental and cultural factors, building technology, and related fields that shape the built environment. The minor comprises nine credits of required courses and nine elective credits (from a list of approved courses.) The minor provides all students an opportunity to learn about architecture, preparation for future graduate / professional studies in architecture if desired, and the possibility* of advanced standing in our own 3-year M.Arch program. For Interior Design and Landscape Architecture students in the College of Architecture the minor is especially efficient because these programs already require some of the same courses. More-
