The KU Master of Urban Planning program emphasizes policy planning and analysis within the context of urban or urbanizing environments. Policies affecting urban issues are formulated at all levels of government--federal, state, regional, and local--as well as in the private sector. The MUP program is geared towards meeting the needs for public planning policy in all these forums.
Our master’s degree is accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board. This status gives graduates of the Program an advantage in seeking membership in the American Institute of Certified Planners. The program has been continuously accredited since 1983.
