Doctoral Community

The faculty of the Graduate Group in City and Regional Planning admits  between two and four students the PhD program each year.  Most but not all who apply to the Program have already received a masters degree in city planning or an aligned field. The Graduate Group faculty anticipate students’ completion of the degree within four to five years of full-time study from the time of initial enrollment.  Eight to 12 PhD students/candidates in City and Regional Planning are in residence at any given time.
