Dual-degree student Julia Katz works with volunteers to build a parking lot for a multi-family building whose tenants have disabilities and used to be homeless.

With a MPH/MCRP dual-degree, graduates are able to apply social and behavioral science methods to shape the social and physical environment in ways that promote public health, safety and livability in communities.

The Department of Health Behavior and the Department of City and Regional Planning share a commitment to social intervention that positively influences individuals and communities. The dual-degree program combines knowledge and skills from both programs so that students learn how to shape the physical and social urban community in health-enhancing ways. Graduates of the program earn a Master of Public Health (MPH) and Master of City and Regional Planning (MCRP) in three years.

Students must apply to each degree program separately and are encouraged to apply to both programs simultaneously. To optimize funding opportunities and course sequencing, we recommend beginning the dual-degree program in the Department of City and Regional Planning.
