The Master of Arts in Sustainable Urban Development (MASUD) at DePaul University seeks to educate students to be address real-world issues facing urban environments that including how to become more sustainable; how to best utilize old industrial sites; modernizing transportation networks; how to best invest economic development funding; how can community input be better incorporated into the public decision process. Classes are split between both the downtown Chicago and Lincoln Park neighborhood campuses. The degree includes a 13-course (52 credit hour) graduate program that integrates academics with practical learning. Students benefit from the local citys resources in Chicago and visiting expert guest speakers, site visits, and industry-standard Geographic Information Systems (GIS) digital mapping technology. A genuinely interdisciplinary program that integrates analytical aspects from fields such as Urban Planning, Public Policy, Sociology, Geography, Public Service Management, Environmental Studies, Real Estate, the MASUD introduces students to sustainable urban development policy, data collection and analysis, planning processes, strategies for implementation, modes of communication, and evaluation mechanisms. The first year of study provides a theoretical background as well as an introduction to the technologies used in urban development and planning. The second year of the curriculum is dedicated to teaching advanced courses and completing a required internship and a capstone/portfolio component.

I did my program through DePaul but it was remote through my employer. I appreciated their flexibility to work with local employers to meet the academic needs of people in the area.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2004

The master's certification program at DePaul University prepared me completely for entering elementary teaching! As a second-career educator, the hands-on, practical application of learning was exactly what I needed to be prepared to teach. The lessons were relevant, and courses used high-quality resources written by experts in the fields. Compared to colleagues that graduated from other local universities, I was far more prepared for teaching.
