What will I learn?

The dual Master of City and Regional Planning and Master of Science in Geographic Information Science and Technology allows students to earn two complementary sets of strong educational credentials in two years plus one semester, rather than the three years required by the two separate degrees. Graduates of the program are prepared for employment in professions related to both geospatial technologies and city planning.

The program’s graduates work for a wide-variety of employers including private sector consulting companies, non-profit organizations, and government agencies at every level of government. MCRP+MS-GIST graduates are also well-prepared to pursue Ph.D. work in city and regional planning or geographic information science.
