The hallmark of Auburn University's Master of Community Planning (MCP) program is the opportunity for students to engage with communities throughout Alabama and the Southeast region in multiple classes. As part of the Alabama City Year Program, MCP students and faculty partner with local communities and work on planning projects to provide hands-on student learning experiences in classes such as urban economics, urban design, sustainable transportation planning, historic preservation planning, and the synthesis (capstone) studio. Students learn to help diverse communities create and implement plans that improve and protect their quality-of-life, culture, resource base, built environment, natural environment, and economic vitality
