Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) Webinar
Thursday, February 28, 2019 - 1:00pm

The Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) is part of the Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning, located within the College of Urban and Public Affairs at Portland State University.

The program focuses on the practice of planning. Our goal, simply stated, is to educate planning professionals, able to make plans and also to become leaders in the field. Our students engage in practice from the moment they join us, and we use the real planning issues and processes of our region, state, and bioregion as the basis for much of our teaching and research. Experiential learning is an integral component of the program, which requires an internship and a workshop project that is client‐focused, community‐based and culminates in a professional product to serves as a capstone to the program.

The MURP is a two‐year, 72 credit professional degree program designed for those interested in working as professional planners. The curriculum includes a 43‐credit core that focuses on the history and theory of planning as a field, plan implementation, analytical methods, and the dynamics of metropolitan development. MURP students have the opportunity to customize their education to meet particular scholastic and professional objectives.
