The Master of Science in Real Estate Development prepares students for careers in one of the world’s most dynamic and influential industries. The industry makes places where people live and work, develops local economies and employment, and shapes cities and environments.
The University at Buffalo invites applications from outstanding candidates interested in pursuing a career in research and teaching through its PhD program in urban and regional planning.
The MArch + MUP embraces the notion that architecture and urban planning are fundamentally intertwined as evidenced by the impact of architecture on the urban fabric and the influence of urban planning on architecture. 
The MUP + JD dual-degree program, offered jointly with the UB School of Law, explores the facets of local, state, federal and international policy and practice. The program prepares students for a variety of professional roles in public service, private law firms, planning consulting firms and public legal practice.
