The Planning Accreditation Board requires this information be posted for the Masters of Community and Regional Planning program.
Student achievement is measured by graduates’ satisfaction with their overall, integrated educational experience. Exit surveys of recent graduates (approx. 90% response rate each year) show this satisfaction to be very high:
Student achievement is also demonstrated through the masters professional project or thesis, which is a requirement of the program and an integrated, capstone experience. The project/thesis is assessed by the faculty supervisor and either a second reader (for projects), who is usually a practicing professional, or an examining committee (for theses). In the last 3 years (Fall 2014 ~ Spring 2017), 98% of graduates produced a project/thesis that met or exceeded the program’s expectations. (This is defined here as a grade of 80%, which at SCARP indicates “normal standing for graduate students,” or higher).
