Students specializing in transportation may be eligible to be awarded a Transportation Certificate. The Transportation Certificate Program, coordinated by the Urban and Regional Planning Director of Graduate Studies, enables students to be awarded an additional credential. It is documented on a student's transcript at the time the master's degree is earned. To apply to the Transportation Studies Program students must complete this form before the established deadline for the Degree Application set by the Graduate College (approximately 10 weeks before graduation).
To obtain a certificate, Planning students must complete 16 credit hours of transportation-related courses offered in Urban and Regional Planning and Civil and Environmental Engineering. Specific requirements are listed in the University General Catalog under the heading of Transportation Studies. Substitutions are possible if the courses listed are not offered during the student's residency at the University of Iowa.
A Geoinformatics certificate is available to graduate students through the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Informatics (IGPI) . The 21 semester hours of courses required to complete the certificate include offerings from Urban and Regional Planning, Geographical and Sustainability Sciences, Geoscience, and Statistics.
