Dual Master's Degree in Regional Planning and Real Estate
Students interested in the intersection of the built environment and real estate can pursue a dual master of real estate (M.P.S. RE) with the Paul Rubacha Department of Real Estate and master of regional planning (M.R.P.) degree with the Department of City and Regional Planning. The roles of planners and real estate developers are frequently intertwined. By providing skills and knowledge in both fields, the three-year M.P.S. RE/M.R.P. degree program enables practitioners to pursue professional opportunities that require a sophisticated understanding of the real estate development process in the context of city and regional planning.
M.R.P. graduate students who pursue a dual degree in the M.P.S. RE program should anticipate three semesters of residence to complete the core requirements of the real estate program. Likewise, real estate graduate students who pursue a dual degree with an M.R.P. should anticipate three semesters of residence completing 30 required course credits in the M.R.P. curriculum with enough elective credits to total 90 credits in all. In either case, it is important to apply to the second field early to provide an appropriate amount of time for admissions review.
