The Environmental Health Sciences Department in the School of Public Health and the Department of Urban Planning have received approval to offer a concurrent plan of study providing an integrated curriculum for students interested in interdisciplinary training on the public health consequences of urban planning.  Students in this program will study how public health intersects with urban design and land use patterns, location choices and activity participation, economic factors, equity and social justice, governance and institutional management and planning for sustainability.  Concurrent students will pursue studies in both schools/departments and earn both a MPH in Public Health with an emphasis in Environmental Health Sciences and a Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) following three years of full time study.
