As one of the largest graduate planning programs in the nation and the only accredited planning program in the Chicago area, the Urban Planning and Policy (UPP) Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) offers Master's and Ph.D. degrees in Urban Planning and Policy as well as the interdisciplinary Masters in Real Estate (MRE).

Our students have a variety of academic backgrounds and come from diverse geographic areas, but all come to our UPP Program because they want to make a difference--promoting equitable as well as efficient cities and metro regions, enriching as well beautiful communities, and vital as well as successful neighborhoods.

Our integration of practice, scholarship and engaged research ensures that urban Planning and Policy students are exposed to state-of-the art research in their coursework. Students will also have many opportunities to apply their planning knowledge to real-world problems in our planning studios, as research assistants within our centers, labs and institutes, and as planning interns.
