Plan your future in urban design
Not only are we the only art and design university in the U.S. to offer a Master of Urban Design degree, we do it all in the midst of one of the most celebrated city plans in the world. Beyond your homebase in Savannah, you may also study for a quarter or more at our locations in Atlanta and Lacoste, where you can observe first-hand how cities grow and function in different contexts and on different continents. We give you all of the tools you'll need to thrive as an urban designer, making cityscapes more beautiful, more functional and more vibrant.
