We're Innovative

Planning isn't one-size-fits-all, and our program reflects that. At USF, you can become a contemporary urban planner by researching innovative approaches and developing solutions that work in a global society. The interdisciplinary curriculum allows you to create an individualized course of study tailored to fit the demands of today's urban planners.

Tampa Bay: Teaching in Context

Tampa is the center of Florida's population growth: our diverse, dynamic urban setting provides an exceptional context for becoming a planner. USF works closely with professionals across the region, via networking and internships, so you can be involved in developing our vibrant urban area.

Creating Your Future

These close relationships with Tampa Bay's professional community contributes to a 100% job placement rate for USF MURP graduates. MURP alumni have gone on to careers with Tampa Bay area local governments or planning consultants including the Hillsborough County Planning Commission, Tindale-Oliver & Associates, the Florida Department of Transportation and the City of Sarasota.

The program has an active affiliation with local planning practitioners in partnership with the Suncoast Section of American Planning Association Florida Chapter.
