URBAN PLANNING & ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY
About The Department
The Barbara Jordan – Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs offers a Dual MUPEP / Juris Doctorate (JD) Degree in coordination and partnership with the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University. The program allows students to complete requirements for the two degrees in four (4) years instead of five years, if pursued separately.
The program is intended for students who want to obtain mastery of the administrative and legal aspects of urban planning and environmental policy in the public, private and non-profit sectors; combining advanced urban planning and environmental planning education with legal training in order to enhance or expand their career options. To be eligible, the student must apply to and be accepted by both programs.
It is my privilege to welcome you to the Department of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy in the Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs at Texas Southern University. Our department offers instruction, research, and professional services through two graduate degree programs, Master’s of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy (MUPEP) and Doctoral of Philosophy (PhD) in Urban Planning and Environmental Policy.
