JD/Master of Community Planning

About the Joint Degree

This exclusive joint-degree program combines advanced degrees from renowned programs at the University of Cincinnati. We are one of only a few schools in the nation to offer the JD/MCP degree, which can be completed in just four years. For problem-solvers with a passion for community development, urban revitalization and equity in issues like housing and education, this academic path promises extensive opportunities to learn and make an impact.

This four-year program begins with one year devoted exclusively to Cincinnati Law courses. The second year is completed primarily at the School of Planning in the prestigious College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. The final two years are spent taking both law and planning courses.
