City and Regional Planning

Overview Located in the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, the fourth largest metropolitan region in the U.S., both our  City and Regional Planning Master’s Degree Program (MCRP ) and Ph.D. in Urban Planning & Public Policy (UPPP) programs are situated in an optimal laboratory to study, analyze, and provide planning solutions to contemporary urban problems, such as sprawl, pollution, equity, carbon footprints, economic development, aging infrastructure, and, more generally, contributing to the development of sustainable cities and regions. Both programs reside in the College of Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs (CAPPA), whose Institute of Urban Studies provides student research and practical experience through the professional planning services it offers to cities across the state of Texas. MCRP The MCRP program prepares students for careers as professional planners with public, private and nonprofit organizations. It does this by training students to apply planning theory, knowledge, techniques, and skills to “real world” planning problems through coursework, studios, and internship opportunities. UTA’s City and Regional Planning Master’s Degree Program is accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board (PAB). The program’s mission, goals and objectives, and accreditation efforts are shaped in consultation with the MCRP Advisory Board composed of alumni and area practitioners. UPPP The Ph.D. Program in Urban Planning and Public Policy (UPPP) prepares Doctoral students for careers in university teaching and research, research organisations and think tanks, senior public, private, or non-profit sector positions and also policy or advocacy institutes. It does this by integrating the academic disciplines of urban planning and public policy, providing students with a rich core of substantive and procedural knowledge concerning policy and planning. The Program combines theoretical inquiry and analysis with application, offering students diverse approaches to policy and planning issues. Students are encouraged to pursue dissertation research using either or both quantitative and qualitative methodologies, and the Program offers extensive preparation in these modes of inquiry.
