City and Regional Planning Master of City and Regional Planning

About us

The Master in City and Regional Planning (MCRP) program at The Ohio State University trains students to become professional planners who apply knowledge and theory to practice, while introducing students to the latest developments in planning knowledge and techniques. This course of study occurs in the context of a university whose mission includes both the attainment of international distinction in education and scholarship and the traditional role of a land-grant university with a heritage of public service. 

Students in the MCRP program do work that is connected to practice—including a required internship and client-based studio work.  Most students pursue paid internship experiences throughout their two years in the program, made available through the program’s network of public, not-for-profit, and private sponsors. 

The MCRP program emphasizes the leadership, vision, and skills to support equitable, sustainable, and efficient communities at the local, regional, national and international levels, with global concerns and perspectives integrated throughout.  In support, we offer travel programs across the globe—Ghana, Taiwan, Europe, and Latin America.

The program affords students the ability to concentrate their work in an area of interest or purse additional expertise through a graduate minor or dual degree, taking advantage of the MCRP’s position within a large and diverse university.

This program is accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board.
