Dual Master of Urban and Regional Planning & Master of Public Health

Program Overview

The MURP & MPH dual degree arises from the commonalities of perspective and purpose shared by its two constituents. A subset of public health addresses the health impacts caused by people’s environments—which is the domain of urban and regional planning. Planners recognize that policies, infrastructures, and social and economic conditions contribute to environmental conditions and thus can play a role in human health.

Promote health by improving the places where people live, work, and play with a Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) from CU Denver's College of Architecture and Planning and a Master of Public Health (MPH) from the Colorado School of Public Health at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. To join this program, you must apply to each master's program separately, gain admission to each program, and then apply for the dual degree.

The Master of Public Health  is offered by the Colorado School of Public Health and is the primary professional degree in the field of public health. It prepares students for a variety of public health careers: epidemiological and health services research, community needs assessment, environmental and occupational health, health policy, health promotion, and administration of public health programs.
