The mission of the Nohad A. Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning is to assist in the development of healthy communities through an interdisciplinary program of teaching, research and public service. Faculty and students engage the intellectual, policy and practice aspects of urban studies and planning from the local to the international levels and actively participate in the analysis, development and dissemination of the innovations for which Portland and the Pacific Northwest are known.


The School offers three graduate degrees:

Master of Urban and Regional Planning, a 2-year, fully accredited professional degree in urban and regional planning.


Master of Urban Studies, a 2-year predoctoral degree for those considering either a career in policy analysis and research or continuing on for a doctorate at a later date.


Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Urban Studies, a doctoral degree for those either seeking a scholarly career or simply wanting to develop an understanding of a field in depth through original research
