URP Focus Area Info Sessions

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 here 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.
