Program Overview

Our two-year, 33 unit Master's Urban and Public Affairs program will train you to understand and shape policy, with a focus on the urban and metropolitan histories that impact our region.

You will receive both classroom and hands-on training in the mechanics of urban policy and advocacy. The community-based research requirement will give you experience conducting applied urban research and analyzing policy alternatives. The capstone project and full-time summer internship will allow you to develop expertise in specific areas of urban, regional, or public policy, while building the personal and professional networks that will help you launch your career upon graduation.
