Master of Regional Planning

Cornell's renowned city and regional planning program has a solid curriculum that combines theory and practice in both domestic and international realms. Through almost unparalleled access to internships and workshops, master of regional planning (M.R.P.) students test their ideas, research, and course work in practice, while bringing real world problems back into the classroom for critical examination.

Cornell's planning education is a collaborative endeavor: there is a strong sense of cooperation among the faculty and great openness to student input. Each of the approximately 40 students entering each year creates an individualized program, building on the department's core curriculum and selecting elective classes to reflect personal goals.

The M.R.P. program at Cornell is accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board (PAB). In addition, the M.R.P. program is now designated as a STEM program making international M.R.P. graduates eligible to extend their F-1 visas for up to three years in order to work in the United States.
