The Master of Urban Regional Planning program’s flexible curriculum provides students the opportunity to explore a wide range of topics in the field of urban and regional planning or gain depth in a specific area. The focus areas described below provide guidance about elective courses a student could take to more fully explore that topic. Focus areas are structured to be potential courses of study, and are not a requirement for the Master of Urban Regional Planning degree.

Courses listed as “Primary Courses” provide a majority of the material directed toward the focus area, “Secondary Courses” provide a smaller share of course material on the focus area; and “Non-URP courses” are offered in other units on campus.
