Description

The Humphrey School's MPP information session will allow you to learn more about the program, the admissions process and ask any questions you may have.


Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP)

The Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) degree is designed to produce professionals able to think across fields of expertise to see and act upon the links among environmental systems, land use and transportation systems, infrastructure development, and housing and community development. The program equips graduates with the technical and analytical skills needed to think strategically about developing and implementing plans at the neighborhood, city, or regional level.

As a planner, you can work for positive change by using your skills to help build cities, tackle urban sprawl, upgrade housing, protect the environment, design regional institutions, and promote economic development.

What Our Graduates Do

Planners work for government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and private consulting firms. Urban and regional planners work to improve communities by preserving and enhancing quality-of-life, protecting the natural-built environment, promoting equity and equality, improving services to all the communities that make up cities and regions, and promoting efficient and sustainable growth and development.
