Department Website

The Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) program at the University of Colorado Denver is a fully accredited, 54-credit program emphasizing experiential learning and engaging students with planning and design professionals and the community. We believe that successful city building requires expertise, breadth, interdisciplinary understanding, and creativity, so our program looks beyond traditional professional silos and instead is structured around three initiatives that reflect issues at the forefront of planning today: healthy communities, urban revitalization and regional sustainability. We offer a unique, self-directed curriculum that allows students to understand the breadth of the planning field and gain the technical expertise demanded by the profession, as well as take elective courses in the areas that matter most to them. Our world-class faculty includes highly respected researchers who make teaching a top priority, and award-winning planning practitioners who bring a wealth of experience to the classroom.

Applicants who are residents of the WICHE region and wish to qualify for resident tuition through WRGP should attach the WRGP Contract and a copy of their driver's license to their MURP application under "supplemental documents."
