The MCP/MPA is a joint degree program sponsored by the Fels Institute of Government and the Weitzman School. The proposed MCP/MPA dual degree program expands career opportunities by enabling students to combine an understanding of the planning process and public administration. Graduates from this dual degree program would be strong candidates for positions in nonprofit organizations, private consulting firms, a variety of businesses, and government agencies. Students must take the required courses in each curriculum (15 CPLN cus, 7 cus in MPA program). The blended curriculum covers approximately 5 semesters and includes the City Planning summer internship requirement.
