Event Details

Learn about the Spitzer School's post-professional program for students with architecture and landscape architecture backgrounds: Urban Design (Master of Urban Planning). This session will include a welcome by Dean Marta Gutman, a program overview by Professor Julio Salcedo-Fernandez, a discussion with faculty and recent graduates, and Q&A.

The Urban Design program is newly centered on participatory urbanism, the premise that only a combination of leadership, technical, and design skills will lead to meaningful change in the way we think, plan, and construct our built environments. Building on the leadership of the late Michael Sorkin, the program is specifically designed to foster new conversations in response to our urbanized planetary crises and provide transformative alternatives that radically reimagine our cities as equitable, diverse, resourceful, and ecologically nimble.

Spitzer School grad programs share a teaching, research, and design environment known as the unit system. Within year-long, team-taught, vertically integrated design units, students and professors work together to define questions and propose design solutions. Just like in the professions, students synthesize diverse skills and subject areas into their projects. Check out this year’s design units.

Our next priority deadline is in January 2023 to begin studies in Fall 2023. Please see instructions on our Graduate Application Instructions page.
