Students in the Master in Urban Planning (MUP) program can undertake concurrent degrees with other departments at the GSD and joint degrees with certain schools outside the GSD. Concurrent degree students must be in full-time residence at the GSD for at least one additional year beyond the longer of the two degree programs.

Concurrent Degrees

Popular concurrent degrees include MUP with:
Master in Landscape Architecture (MLA)

In addition to the general combination of the MUP with any MDes area, it is possible to use a dual degree in MUP and MDes to pursue advanced training in physical planning, over the course of three years of study.
