Master of Professional Studies in Sustainable Urban Planning

As an organizer I start from where the world is, as it is, not as I would like it to be. That we accept the world as it is does not in any sense weaken our desire to change it into what we believe it should be - it is necessary to begin where the world is if we are going to change it to what we think it should be.

- Saul Alinsky

Welcome to the Sustainable Urban Planning Program - a progressive, student-centered master's degree program at the George Washington University. The program, which was launched in 2011, is designed to train the next generation of leaders in the field of urban and regional planning. It views the practice of planning as both a humanitarian and scientific enterprise and, for that reason, draws heavily on the disciplinary traditions from analytical human geography, neoclassical economics, and regional science.

The Sustainable Urban Planning Program addresses everything that more conventional urban planning programs cover - with the added dimension of sustainability, which runs through the program from start to finish. In the program, you will find a world-class set of faculty who work closely with their students; challenging coursework keyed to the cutting edge of the field; an independent student government; outstanding opportunities for networking with professionals working in sustainable development planning, both domestically and internationally; a study abroad program, set in Seoul, Korea; and much more - it is a great and truly exciting place to pursue your graduate work!
