About the Master of Science in Urban Land Development


Downtown Sacramento viewed from Harbor Blvd.This program brings together the private (decision making) and public (policy) aspects of real estate development and helps students develop skills related to land development in metropolitan areas. Our program is interdisciplinary and covers all major aspects of the development process including design, feasibility analysis, land use regulation, market and location analysis, and negotiation. Thus, our graduates can bridge the gap between 1) professional training in fields such as city planning and public policy and 2) business administration. Graduates learn to understand the constraints and incentives faced by both the private and public sectors when making land use recommendations and decisions.
