Students may get credit toward the master of city and regional planning (M.C.R.P.) degree through an internship with a public agency, nonprofit corporation, or private consulting firm. Some of these positions provide a stipend while others are unpaid. The student works an average of eight hours a week and writes a paper based on the internship experience. No more than 3 credits may be earned in this manner. The Bloustein School's Office of Student and Academic Services provides assistance in placing students in internships. Forms are available from that office and more information may be found on the Bloustein School website.
