BA in Environmental Studies/Accelerated Master of Urban Planning

Only current KU undergraduate students are eligible to apply to the Accelerated M.A. program. If you are not a current undergraduate student at KU, please review the admission requirements for regular MUP program.

The Accelerated Master’s program in Environmental Studies and Urban Planning is designed for students who have a passion for sustaining both our natural and built environments. It allows well-qualified students to earn a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in five years, rather than the six years it would take to earn each degree separately. This program combines in-depth training in environmental studies and analysis with a professional degree in urban planning.  Graduates are prepared for careers in environmental planning in the public, private and not-for profit sectors.
