SCaRP would like to congratulate the thirty-nine students who have received the Master of City and Regional Planning degree in the past twelve months. The MCRP degree is a professional degree which prepares students to work on complex planning problems at the local, regional, state, and national levels. In addition to completing more than forty hours of core, specialization, and elective graduate coursework, the MCRP degree requires the completion of an applied planning studio and an applied research paper or thesis examining an issue of local, regional, or national planning significance.
