The MURP (Master of Urban and Regional Planning) at Virginia Tech, with its two locations, is unique because it offers access to urban planning in rural, suburban, urban, national, and international areas. The environmental planning and policy specialization provides graduate education in the theoretical frameworks for environmental management, as well as the professional tools essential for developing solutions to environmental problems, including: analytical techniques for environmental planning; public participation and negotiation; institutional approaches; and policy development, implementation, and evaluation.
