About

This dual Georgia Institute of Technology City and Regional Planning and Law degree program broadens the intellectual horizons of both Georgia State University College of Law and the Georgia Institute of Technology College of Architecture by facilitating interdisciplinary study.

Overview

Key facts

The  Georgia Institute of Technology City and Regional Planning and Law degree supports the interest of students who wish to pursue study in the field of both law and urban planning. 

The Planning Law dual degree supports the interests of students who wish to pursue study in the fields of both law and city and regional planning, provides a focal point for exploring the connections between the two disciplines through the research and instruction between the two programs; and provides an educational opportunity that reflects the fact that land management law and city and regional planning have become increasingly integrated and interdisciplinary in nature. The program promotes a broader educational experience for today’s land use law or planning professionals, by providing expertise in both disciplines.

The cooperative J.D./MCRP program will permit students to use credit hours earned in one program to satisfy some of the elective course requirements of the other program, thus permitting them to earn both degrees in a shorter time than would be possible pursuing both degrees separately. The program supports the interest of students who wish to pursue study in the field of both law and urban planning.
