The Master of Community and Regional Planning (MCRP) degree is SCARP’s accredited Masters program. The MCRP is classified as a professional degree and is intended for students interested in Planning and related professions. As of its initiation in 2015, the MCRP replaced the former Master of Arts in Planning (MAP) / Master of Science in Planning (MScP) as SCARP's professional program.
Beginning in Fall 2017, the Master of Arts in Planning (MAP) / Master of Science in Planning (MScP) is offered as a research-based degree culminating in a master's thesis. The MAP/MScP is intended for practicing professionals wishing to strengthen their research skills, students with undergraduate planning degrees from accredited programs, and students intending to eventually pursue doctoral research.
The School of Community & Regional Planning's PhD Program provides students with a collegial and convivial environment in which to pursue interdisciplinary research at the intersections of planning theory and practice. We aim to foster planning scholars and practitioners who can think critically, research inventively, and communicate their ideas effectively.
