Research Masters: Application Steps

The field of planning includes many rich and diverse areas of research. The School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP) has a small number of faculty with dedicated expertise in a subset of planning areas.  The Research Masters program therefore focuses on nurturing and supervising a small number of select applicants. SCARP takes great care in ensuring a good match between student, supervisor, and area of research.
