Master of Urban Planning degree. Coordinated degree programs offer simultaneous master's degrees in Urban Planning and Architecture, Engineering, or Public Administration. A Certificate in Urban Geographic Information Systems may be combined with any other UWM master's program.
Economic development, environmental resources, land use, transportation, urban design and physical planning, urban geographic information systems, and urban revitalization are emphases of the program and permit interdisciplinary studies in other departments.
