Full Program Description

The School of Public Policy & Urban Affairs at Northeastern University offers an exciting interdisciplinary Master’s of Science in Urban and Regional Policy (MURP). The program seeks to meet the need for urban policy analysts and practitioners to better understand two critical issues about the 21st century metropolitan area: (1) the opportunities and challenges for cities and suburbs of being part of a fully globalized economy and (2) the opportunities and challenges for sustainability in a world of dwindling resources and environmental constraints. These challenges require more integrated approaches, and new kinds of urban policy experts and leaders.

Students in the Master of Urban & Regional Policy program analyze and develop real-world solutions to these challenges, be they in housing, energy and transportation, resource sustainability, civil infrastructure, or economic opportunity. Through this program you will become part of the next generation of experts and leaders dedicated to creating livable and sustainable cities everywhere.
