A Master of Civic Design (MCD) is a postgraduate academic master degree in Town and Regional Planning awarded by the University of Liverpool, England. The degree level is equivalent to a Master of Arts or Master of Science postgraduate degree in alternative disciplines.

The degree (MCD) is unique in that it is the only taught postgraduate degree with that label.[1] The University of Liverpool's Department of Civic Design is the world's first planning school, and as such the MCD label uniquely identifies graduates from the department.

The degree is a taught programme of study that enables students from a wide range of undergraduate degree backgrounds to embark on a career of professional practice in town planning and related fields. The degree is typically studied as a one-year full-time or two-years part-time 'intensive' programme with full accreditation from the Royal Town Planning Institute, giving licentiate membership of the Royal Town Planning Institute.[2]
