Program Experience
  • Capstone — Students are required to complete a Capstone, a semester-long project that requires student teams to work in partnership with local, state, or federal agencies or nonprofit institutions, to assess an urban or regional problem, produce a thorough policy analysis, and recommend solutions to the client. 
  • Opportunities Abroad — Students can participate in a one-semester exchange program with the Universiteit van Amsterdam’s Urban Studies Research Master’s Program or KU Leuven. This is an academic, research-oriented program that will be complementary to our professionally-focused Urban Planning and Policy program.
