    Scottish graduate looking for masters course in the US

    I am currently in my final year at the University of Glasgow (Scotland) and studying geography. My intention is to come to the US to undertake a one year masters (postgraduate) degree in transportation planning. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a university anywhere in the US that provides a masters course in Transport Planning. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi! Welcome to Cyburbia

    Most of the Master's programs in the US are two years, not one (although I know that's not the case in England/the UK). Many programs offer a degree in Urban Planning or City and Regional Planning, and you concentrate in a specialized area like Transportation Planning (you take courses/intern/write a thesis on that topic). I would recommend looking for planning schools in a few areas of the country you would want to live in and see if they offer transportation planning (many schools do). You can also check out the Planetzein guide to find schools that are highly ranked in transportation planning. To find accredited schools, check out the Planning Accreditation Board's list (it's online at http://www.planningaccreditationboar...ndex.php?id=30)

    I hope that helps in getting you started; I just applied for this fall so I don't have too much specific information for you. Good luck!

    I think Boston University has a masters planning degree that can be completed in one year.
