The Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) professional degree program prepares students for future success in urban and regional planning and related career fields. We provide a rigorous academic foundation to develop the critical analytical skills required to address complex urban challenges.
MURP is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top professional planning programs, and is the only master’s program in the Orange County and San Diego areas with full accreditation from the Planning Accreditation Board (PAB).
Our post-graduation employment rate is consistently strong. In the three most recent academic years, 100% of our graduates obtained full-time employment in planning or a planning-related field within one year. (Data available for 71 of 89 or 80% of students awarded MURP degrees from 2015 - 2017.)
