Program Description:

The Ph.D. in Urban, Technological, and Environmental Planning (UTEP) is a multidisciplinary doctoral degree aimed at training mature individuals interested in policy and research in public and private sector planning issues. In order to prepare to do research in a subarea of this large field, each student is expected to demonstrate an understanding of the literature, theory, and research in a specialization area within urban, regional, technological, and environmental planning. The highly individualized course of study operates under the premise that concepts and methods from several professions and academic disciplines are applicable to problem solving and planning for various urban and regional systems. Accordingly, faculty are drawn from the College of Architecture and Urban Planning and from other schools, colleges and institutes of the University of Michigan.
