The MCRP is a 24-month professional master's degree in Planning. It is an innovative and flexible program that anticipates and responds to rapidly changing urban, regional, and global environments.

The MCRP curriculum offers a strong core sequence of 42 credits that is tailored to the evolving demands of the profession. Students will additionally complete 18 credits of elective courses customized for their interests and professional aspirations. In the second year of the program, students will complete a 2-term studio course that integrates theories and methods covered throughout the curriculum into a single team-based project, with a real client or community group.

Cumulative program requirements provide students with real world experience and prepare them for entry into a wide variety of planning jobs. The program also features an Internship experience and a mentoring program.
