Master of Urban and Regional Planning

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) program is a two-year interdisciplinary professional degree open to students from a wide variety of undergraduate fields. The program has a dual objective of training graduates for their first planning job, and more importantly instilling conceptual and critical thinking necessary for lifelong learning and career development. While the required core provides "generalist" planning theories and skills, one-half of the curriculum is in the student's area of specialization and provides substantive skills in a specific area of interest.
