MUPP/MPH Joint Degree

Introducing the Joint Degree in Urban Planning and Public Health at UIC.

This master’s degree allows you to work at the intersection of planning, policy, and community health by integrating the skills and competencies provided by two of the most respected graduate programs in the nation.

The UIC College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs (CUPPA) and the UIC School of Public Health (SPH) work collaboratively to deliver the Master of Urban Planning and Policy/Master of Public Health (MUPP/MPH).  Programs of study leading to the joint MUPP/MPH degree are offered by the following SPH Divisions:

  • Community Health Sciences
  • Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences
  • Epidemiology
  • Health Policy and Administration

All of our UPP graduate degrees are STEM classified under Sustainability Studies which means that international students with F-1 visas are eligible to remain in the US under the OPT (Optional Practical Training) program for up to three years and two months after graduation. Students with H-1b visas can stay up to 9 years after graduation.
