The Master of Professional Science degree (MPS) in Urban Sustainability and Resilience program is an interdisciplinary 36 credit program offered jointly between the College of Arts & Sciences’ Department of Geography and Regional Studies and the School of Architecture. The curriculum leverages the knowledge, skills and hands-on practical engagement necessary for students working toward contributing to the urban challenges confronting cities on the front lines of climate change. Miami is the ideal living laboratory, an urban landscape to explore, analyse and propose solutions to the complex interrelationships among globalization, urban resilience, sustainability and planning, such as health, housing, crime, the environment, disaster mitigation, and sea-level rise. This unique program is designed for students from diverse backgrounds in architecture, environmental sciences, management, social sciences, or those already working in green careers (pending final approval by Board of Trustees).
