About URP

The Department of Urban and Regional Planning (URP) was established in 1975, and we will celebrate our 50th anniversary in 2025.

We offer a variety of programs for undergraduate and graduate students to advance education and research. Our campus-based Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) was first accredited in 1978. The online option of the MURP program is the first and only fully-accredited online program by the Planning Accreditation Board (PAB). In support of the University of Florida’s Artificial Intelligence initiative, the Graduate Certificate Program in Urban Analytics and the Master of Science in Urban Analytics were recently launched. The Ph.D. program with URP concentration continues to educate the next generation of planning researchers and educators.

URP continues to lead planning education and research, with the co-creation of the of Landscape Architecture and Planning in 2009. In 2023, our MURP program was ranked 22nd in the nation, sixth in the South, and the 10th largest by enrollment.
