The Master of Urban Planning (MUP) program educates and trains professional urban planners and researchers to become leaders in developing and applying participatory, evidence-based urban and regional policy and planning solutions that move communities toward a sustainable and resilient future. The MUP program uses an evidence-based approach to planning education based on six major learning outcomes: leadership, inquiry skills, planning knowledge, planning processes, plan assessment, and communication.
