Academic Programs

The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy offers undergraduate, graduate, and dual-degree programs for students interested in public and private-sector careers, teaching and research, and at all levels of government and nonprofit organizations. The degree programs are organized into four major program areas: master's programs in public policy and urban planning, a doctoral program in planning and public policy, and undergraduate programs in planning and public policy, public policy, and public health.
