3-2 Program in City and Regional Planning with the University of Pennsylvania

This arrangement with the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of Pennsylvania allows a student to earn an A.B. degree with a major in the Growth and Structure of Cities Program at Bryn Mawr and a degree of Master of City Planning at the University of Pennsylvania in five years. While at Bryn Mawr the student must complete all college-wide requirements and the basis of a major in the Growth and Structure of Cities Program. The student applies to the M.C.P. program at Penn in her junior year. GRE scores will be required for the application. Students are encouraged to prepare for the program by completing both URBS 204 and URBS 440 before entering the program. No courses taken prior to official acceptance into the M.C.P. program may be counted toward the master’s degree, and no more than eight courses may be double-counted toward both the A.B. and the M.C.P. after acceptance. For further information, students should consult the Cities program early in their sophomore year.
