  • Description:
  • The Urban and Regional Planning Program (URPP) encourages applicants from all walks of life to apply for admission to our MURP program. We are looking for applicants who have a strong intellectual ability; good written and verbal communication skills; basic statistical methods (or demonstrate the potential to master graduate level statistics and methods); and have demonstrated a proven potential for leadership in the field of urban and regional planning.

    URPP offers the dual MURP/JD degree jointly with the MSU College of Law. Dual degree students receive the MURP degree from the Urban and Regional Planning Program, and the Juris Doctor degree from the MSU College of Law.

  • Admission Information:
  • Admission to the MSU Graduate School is highly competitive. MURP applicants admitted to the MSU Graduate School are based on recommendations from the Urban and Regional Planning Program. The MURP Faculty Admissions Committee considers several credentials in determining applicants who are admitted to the MURP degree program. Credentials collectively considered include grades and academic transcripts, GRE scores, statement of purpose, references, and the quality of courses previously completed by the applicant. The statement of purpose should clearly state the applicant’s career goals in planning, completed accomplishments that will assist the applicant in meeting stated career goals, and how an MURP degree from MSU will assist in meeting the applicant’s career goals in planning. A limited number of provisional admissions may be considered when warranted.
