    Mpp/murp

    Hello, I'm interested in urban planning and policy. I am looking for dual degree programs (MPP/MUP). I also want to study U.S. social policy. What are the best dual-degree urban planning programs?

    So far, I have found Michigan and Harvard.

    USC would be a good option as well. After having attended an event there recently, their public affairs program seems even better than their planning program.

    There are a wide variety of dual programs at many schools. I suggest going to the American Planning Association's website www.planning.org and getting the list of accredited programs all of which have websites and contact information listed. Basically you have to do some grunt work in figuring out who offers what. I've seen things like an MPA/MURP, JD/MURP, CE/MURP, MPP/MURP, MArch/MURP, MBA/MURP among others and at some schools you can craft your own dual degree program as long as both departments approve.

    Cheers!
