Graduate Planning Studios

The Masters in Urban and Regional Planning (MRP) Program, a nationally known, accredited program, in the Department of Geography and Planning at the University at Albany, requires graduate students to participate in a real-world studio project.  In this four-credit course, students engage community members to learn about their issues, work with local officials to promote high quality planning outcomes, and gain valuable experience in how to address problems in a public setting.  Recent studios include the the Central Albany Bikeway, a set of action plans to guide strategic neighborhood improvements related to parks, open space and greenway connections for the Arbor Hill neighborhood, including working with neighborhood youth to carry out a public arts mural project, and a planning study on the Mid-City University District among many others.
