I am about to apply to the MUP program at WSU and was looking to get some first hand in-sight from current students or recent graduates. My undergrad is in public administration and public policy if... as if that makes any difference.

You should also check out U of D. They just started a Master's in Community Development. Most of the courses are offered in the afternoon/evening.

Brandon48202,
is Robert Boyle still there? He brought much needed attention to the program. I remember the program was not accredited by the APA in the early 90's. That has changed now. U of M has started offering urban planning courses now at Orchestra Place. I think everyone is starting to realize the potential in Detroit when it comes to sound urban planning.

I took my last class in the Fall of '04, at that time, Robin Boyle was the director of CULMA (College of Labor, Urban and Metropolitan Affairs). One of the first classes I took in the program was taught by Boyle, he was very knowlegable, a good teacher and inspirational. I'm not sure If I will ever work in the Urban Planning field, but I am a glad that went through the program.

Check with Jason Booza of the WSU MUP Program. He'll give you some requirements.
