Overview

Though not solely a design-based curriculum, the City and Regional Planning at Catholic University of America builds on Catholic University’s strong tradition of education in architecture and sustainability to prepare students to become both generalist planners and steward planners. To address the growing need for planning and design interventions that include environmental impacts, students in the City and Regional Planning program explore various methods of creating better environments through the use of sustainable design practices and planning principles.

Several changes have been made to the program since it was launched in 2008. A new tuition rate of $1,000 per credit hour was approved for the M.C.R.P. program in August 2014. Effective January 2016, the total credit hours of the program was reduced from 48 to 42. New joint degree options are now available so that students can combine their interests in architecture, sustainable design and facilities management with city planning. 

Students may enroll simultaneously in the school's accredited CUA+P Master of City and Regional Planning program at Catholic University of America and the Master of City and Regional Planning. They may also enroll simultaneously in either the Master of Science in Sustainable Design or the Master of Science in Facilities Management and the Master of City and Regional Planning. As part of the joint degree program, students are able to obtain the two degrees at an accelerated rate. See the descriptions under each joint degree for the specifics of the program.
