Transportation related education is offered at the graduate level.  Master’s students of transportation select the transportation focus in one of three master’s level programs – Public Policy,  Public Administration, and Urban Planning.  PhD students may focus on transportation in either of the School’s two programs, Urban Planning and Development, or Public Policy and Management.  Transportation graduate students work closely with faculty on important areas of research and scholarly inquiry.  Transportation students at both the master’s and doctoral level are generally supervised by one of METRANS core faculty.
