MS URPL Public Information

Student Achievement

As a demonstration of planning knowledge, students are required to complete a written professional project or thesis and orally present the results of their work prior to graduation. Students also present a poster version of their project at an annual MS Project Forum. Over the last three-year period (2020, 2021, and 2022), students have had a 100% pass rate of their competency requirement (the thesis or professional project). Students also participate in an applied workshop learning experience and produce professional planning reports.
