The Planning Program at UTA offers the only professionally accredited Master in City and Regional Planning in the DFW metroplex. Our master's program (MCRP) prepares students to become life-long professional planners and leaders to solve real-world planning problems. Our Ph.D. program in Urban Planning and Public Policy (UPPP) trains students to conduct independent and cutting-edge research in planning and policy. Both programs have a long history, diverse faculty and students, and a dense network of prominent alumni in planning practice, academia, and research in Texas, the U.S., and around the world.
