The M.A. program in the Department of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning (UEP) at Tufts prepares a new generation of leaders – ‘practical visionaries’ – who will contribute to the development of inclusive and sustainable communities.
A joint degree consists of one master's degree awarded by two graduate departments when a student meets the core master's requirements of both departments. Students may pursue a joint degree with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in the School of Engineering. A dual-degree option (M.A./M.S.) is also offered by the departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering and UEP.
Students must be accepted into both departments in order to enter the joint degree program in UEP/Engineering Joint/Dual Degree. To facilitate the admissions process, however, a single application can be submitted on the Tufts' online application system by choosing the "UEP/Engineering Joint/Dual Degree" program. The application will then be reviewed concurrently by each department according to its own review criteria. The candidate's admission to UEP is not affected by the decision of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
