A Master of Science is a master’s degree with a concentration in a discipline that is generally strong in math and science. It can open new doors in your career by displaying to the world that you have obtained a deep and thorough understanding of the focus of study.

What is a MSc in Urban Planning? This form of planning generally focuses on the strategic placement of resources and habitation within a community, as well as landscaping, territory management, mobility and regional design and urban politics. The study of those concepts can allow you to become proficient in the design and implementation of policies and ideas that will bring the most success to a neighborhood.

The benefits of a MSc in Urban Planning might include a firmer grasp on the structure of neighborhoods like the one in which you live, in-depth critical thinking skills, and strong planning abilities. Those are competencies that can serve you in your personal life as well as your professional one.

The cost of a master’s degree will vary depending upon the region and the school. An estimate of the total expense should be available at each institution.

Careers in urban planning can range from designing as an architect to politics, and everything in between. You might choose to become a landscape architect or an engineer who specializes in urban sprawl. Alternatively, you could go into government, either as an elected official or in the planning and zoning department. You might be well qualified for a position in construction, particularly in a design-build firm as a project manager. There are also options as writers and editors of architectural and design magazines and publications.

Finding a Master of Science program can be as easy as contacting your local university or seeking a program online. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
