Program Description

MSc in Environmental Economics and Urban Planning

Tufts University - Graduate School of Arts and Sciences

In the Master of Science in Environmental Economics and Urban Planning interdisciplinary degree program, you will combine economic analyses with the tools of a professional planner to approach real-world environmental challenges facing cities and urban planners.

Critical environmental challenges face cities today, such as sustainability, climate change, energy efficiency, transportation, land use, and sprawl. To be an advocate for environmental issues, you need to have the quantitative and data skills to be able to effectively evaluate existing and future programs and policies. In this joint degree program, you will develop a quantitative and analytical skill set along with the professional planning credentials to address real-world environmental and urban challenges.

The objective of the Environmental Economics and Urban Planning interdisciplinary degree program is to provide students interested in developing interdisciplinary solutions to modern day environmental challenges with both the professional credentials of an urban planner and the training and mindset of an economist. As a graduate of this program, you will have greater job market prospects as both a professional urban planner and an economist.

What is a joint degree?

A joint degree consists of one master's degree awarded by two graduate departments. The degree combines courses in the Department of Economics with those in the Department of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning (UEP) to provide students with the tools to understand and analyze this broad perspective on environmental economics and urban planning.
