Global Degrees

Global Degrees

The School of City and Regional Planning has several international partnerships that allow for our students to participate in experiences abroad during their time at Georgia Tech. Students can fully immerse themselves in another country while studying toward their graduate degree.

Tongji - Georgia Tech Exchange Program in Shanghai

This unique exchange program prepares M.Arch and MCRP students for global practice by enabling them to earn an additional master's degree upon completing two semesters at the host institution.

Georgia Tech’s MCRP students earn a Master of Urban and Rural Planning (MURP) degree from Tongji University.

Students in this program pay in-state tuition rates during the year of the exchange. While in Shanghai, students will receive a round trip airfare reimbursement (up to 10,000 RMB), free housing, a monthly stipend for 9 months and can apply for a scholarship.

Tongji University’s School of Architecture and Urban Planning (CAUP) has been ranked as No. 1 in China.
