Online Master of Urban and Regional Planning
(MURP) Degree Program
The Department of Urban and Regional Planning is proud to offer the nation’s first and only accredited online Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) degree. The MURP online degree delivery is designed to empower planning professionals with practical knowledge.
Our online program delivery mirrors our campus program delivery, and offers the same courses taught by the same esteemed faculty members. The MURP online program is designed to be primarily asynchronous; students can complete coursework on their own time, from wherever they are in the world. The online program is 100% online, so students do not need to come to campus at any time to complete the requirements for this program.
The MURP online program is generally a 2- to 3-year commitment, although there is flexibility to customize program trajectories. Most students take two courses (6 credits) each semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer). Courses are offered during standard full-semester terms: 16 weeks Fall/Spring, 13 weeks Summer.
Graduates from the online MURP program go on to conduct great planning from coast-to-coast and even internationally, including throughout Florida, the east coast and west coast, American territories, southeast Asia, Europe, and Central America.
