    Tufts UEP Program

    Any thoughts on Tufts' Urban and Environmental Planning program? I know that it is not a "traditional" planning program, but its core courses are similar to other programs and its professors and staff are really flexible in letting you study what you want, including taking classes at other planning schools in the Boston area. For someone such as myself who wants to study planning in the Boston area, I think that UEP will still provide me with the skills (including GIS, field projects, and internships) necessary to get a job in planning.

    I am an alumnus of the program and I was happy with my experience. Tufts has a strong network of alumni in the Boston/NY DC CA planning network of local, state, NGO and private sectors. My focus wasn't pure city planning if you will and my classmates said if you are that might be a weakness compared to MIT and Harvard in regards to course selection. For environmental policy, the EPA's top air official in DC is a UEP alumna so your career ceiling is not limited if that is important to you.

    PM me any questions and please email because I don't check this as often as I used to.
