The dual MS degree program in Public Policy and City and Regional Planning prepares students for policy analysis and planning work at the national, state, and local levels. Graduates work in public, private, and non-profit settings building on the complementary perspectives and skills of the two professions.
In addition to providing interdisciplinary professional training, the dual degree also provides the opportunity to step toward Ph.D. programs in either Public Policy or Planning with an emphasis on Urban, Environmental, or Economic Development Policy.
All students must complete a minimum combined requirement of 75 credit hours for the dual degree program. Students receive both degrees.
Applications are electronic and are handled through the Georgia Tech Graduate Admissions System. Items required for admission (in addition to test scores) are the completed application with essay questions, application fee, official transcripts, and three letters of recommendation.
GRE scores can be sent to the university code R5248 and department code 80.
Priority Deadline: February 15th
Final Deadline: March 15th
