    Florida State University

    Hello.

    Does anyone have any thoughts about or experiences with Florida State's MURP program.


    Thank you.

    For what it is worth... all my thoughts and experiences are excellent. It is a productive, well represented and well respected (I hear) department.

    I've got a buddy that is now a prof at FSU. He is EXTREMELY happy there. Happy professors = good professors = good education, IMHO. FSU has an excellent reputation nationally. Their planning program has a very good relationship with their engineering department as well.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Great program. I loved my professors that I had in the MURP program when I was an undergrad there. I work with a number of FSU DURPs. Very well respected program.

    Is very good, yes

    Good professors, great opportunities to gain experience while in school both for people wanting to work in the public and private sectors. Very good as well as in programs working with the developing world, due to the interantionalist program tie-in with the Peace Corps. Excellent networking opportunitiesand more importantly, job placement upon graduation. Well worth the time, effort, and money to be a DURPie, or in my case, a recent DURP alumni.
