Students must complete at least one of the five areas of concentration:
Community Economic Development and Housing (CEDH)
Design and Development (D&D)
Environmental Analysis and Policy (EAP)

Additional Areas of Concentration In special circumstances students may devise their own area of concentration in consultation with appropriate faculty members. Students must submit to their advisors a written statement outlining an area that falls outside existing offerings no later than the end of Winter Quarter of the first year. This statement should include:
a set of objectives and reasons why the area does not fit into any of the five defined areas
a set of at least five related courses available at UCLA,
a bibliography pertaining to the area, and
the endorsement of at least two professors agreeing to supervise.
Final approval of proposals for individual areas of concentration are by both the Director of the Master's program and the Department Chair.
