Master's Programs

City planning students in downtown Atlanta

 

The big ideas start here.

The School of City and Regional Planning offers the Master of City and Regional Planning (MCRP), the Master of Science in Geographic Information Science and Technology (MS-GIST), and the Master of Science in Urban Design (MS-UD).  

MCRP students may participate in dual degree studies combining this degree with the Master of Architecture, the Master of Science in Civil Engineering, the Master of Science in Public Policy, or the Juris Doctor degree. Our many international partnerships allow for a multitude of global study opportunities. MCRP students may also earn certificates in Heritage Preservation, Remote Sensing, and Geographic Information Systems.

 

Master of City and Regional Planning

The MCRP degree program prepares students to excel as professionals capable of understanding and resolving complex urban planning problems. The curriculum gives students both an understanding of the urban and regional environment and a foundation of skills needed to plan for this environment.

MS in Geographic Information Science & Technology

The Master of Science in Geographic Information Science and Technology (MS-GIST).  Geographic Information Science (GIS) is an emerging field of study centered on the acquisition, management, analysis, and dissemination of spatially-referenced information on, above, and below the surface of the earth.

Master of Science in Urban Design

The MSUD Program offers an intensive and richly interdisciplinary experience, with required courses in urban design, architecture and city planning, with additional opportunities in civil and environmental engineering, real estate development, heritage preservation & more.

MCRP Dual Degrees

SCaRP offers several dual-degree programs pairing the Master of City and Regional Planning with allied professional studies. By enrolling in a dual degree program, students are able to obtain two degrees in less time than it would take if the student were pursuing the degrees separately.
