What is the different between EAP and NEURUS?
MURP students are encouraged to participate in EAP during the fall semester of the second year in the MURP program.

Students considering EAP study at other times should consult with the Planning, Policy, and Design graduate coordinator and faculty graduate advisor first to assess the impact on their time-to-degree.
