The Ph.D. program in Planning, Governance and Globalization is one of two Ph.D. programs available in the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA), the other being the Ph.D. in Public Administration. The Ph.D. in PGG attracts students with widely differing backgrounds and interests. In order to accommodate this diversity, curriculum requirements are defined in two tracks with several thematic areas. These are:

Urban & Environmental Design & Planning Track
Thematic Areas:

Metropolitan Development
Community & Economic Development Planning
International Development Planning
Landscape/Environmental Planning & Landscape Analysis
Transportation Planning
Physical Planning & Urban Design

Governance & Globalization Track
Thematic Areas:

Governance, Institutions, & Civil Society
Globalization, Identities, Security, & Economies

Each doctoral student must complete a minimum of 90 semester hours of graduate study and a dissertation. All students are required to fulfill the requirements for their track or specialization and those of the Graduate School. The curriculum of this doctoral program will follow a flexible research-based program by requiring a small core of courses and by offering two major tracks, as well as thematic areas under each track.

By the end of their first 24 credit hours in the program all students will be expected to have:
(1) developed a plan of study;
(2) selected a faculty advisory committee of a minimum four members; and
(3) completed a "qualifying examination" by their faculty advisory committee. The qualifying examination ensures that the student is making satisfactory progress toward the degree.

By the time students complete the preliminary exam, they must have met the Graduate School's Ethics Requirement. Meeting this mandatory requirement ordinarily will be satisfied by taking SPIA 6006 (Pedagogy) or in extraordinary circumstances, when 6006 cannot be taught, by other courses agreed to by the student's advisory committee.

Governance & Globalization Track Requirements

The following courses can be used to meet the 9-hour, 3 course core requirements:
Accordingly, all students would take 12 credit hours of common core courses (all existing):

Pedagogy: SPIA 6006 or approved substitution.

Urban & Environmental Design & Planning Track Requirements

Students must have preparation in the diverse theoretical literatures that define the field and in both quantitative/analytic and qualitative/field research methods, as well as training in research design. Accordingly, all students would take 12 credit hours of common core courses (all existing):

Pedagogy: SPIA 6006 or approved substitution.
SPIA 6104 Planning Theory Seminar - 3 credits. Planning epistemology and theory. This seminar traces the epistemology of major contemporary theories of planning so as to situate the activity of modern planning in historical and intellectual contexts.
