Graduate Education in Urban Studies & Planning (USP) and Real Estate & Development (RED)

The Urban Studies and Planning Program provides students with a solid foundation for graduate study in a number of fields. After graduation, some alumni pursue graduate work in social science disciplines. Others pursue graduate studies in planning, real estate, development, public policy, law, or architecture. Urban Studies and Planning also attracts students interested in medicine and public-health issues who continue to study in these areas at schools of medicine or public health. 

Below you will find a a brief list of degree programs serving both fields.
