  • Course description
    The Master of Urban Planning is the
    normal academic qualification for those
    entering the planning profession. KU’s
    program is accredited by the Planning
    Accreditation Board. Strong emphasis
    is placed on policy planning and analysis
    in urban or urbanizing environments.
    Students take foundation courses in
    history, theory, and quantitative methods.
    They also specialize in a planning area
    of their choice: environmental planning,
    housing and development planning,
    land use planning and urban design,
    or transportation planning.

    A Master of Urban Planning degree
    opens doors to careers in environmental
    conservation, housing, economic development,
    historic preservation, land use,
    transportation planning, real estate development,
    and many other areas. State, city,
    and local governments as well as profit
    and nonprofit agencies employ planners.
    There are planning jobs in such areas
    as health care delivery, criminal justice,
    education, public finance, public policy
    and management, law, negotiation,
    infrastructure planning, and consulting.

    A solid undergraduate education in
    almost any discipline is good preparation
    for the M.U.P. program. Some common
    undergraduate majors are environmental
    studies, political science, geography,
    business, architecture, sociology,
    economics, engineering, philosophy,
    and history. Admission ordinarily requires
    a bachelor’s degree and a grade-point
    average of approximately 3.0 from KU
    or another institution with substantially
    equivalent bachelor’s degree requirements.
