About Us

Urban and Regional Planning is a dynamic, cutting edge field that attracts diverse individuals and draws upon and integrates knowledge from geography, economics, design, sociology, environmental studies, political science, urban studies, and other fields. Planners use a range of skills from critical thinking to spatial analysis to environmental sustainability assessment to understand and improve our world.

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. 

UCI's 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).
