to UC Berkeley’s Master of City Planning Class of 2020
The Department of City and Regional Planning
honors 60 graduates
Congratulations to the MCP Class of 2020! We knew you were going to be great when we admitted you, but you surpassed our highest expectations. We are so proud of you, and we will be watching from afar as you go forth to make the world a better – and more equitable – place.
Master of City Planning
A requirement of the MCP degree is to participate in a semester-long studio class that simulates the real-world work of city planners and researchers. During the studios, the Class of 2020 carried out fieldwork, engaged with stakeholders, and developed final projects that focus on a variety of topics, including site-specific plans, transportation analyses, and economic policies. Enter the studio to see examples of final reports.
The Class of 2020 was continuously working on new projects and delivering presentations as part of their professional curriculum. Take a look at the process of becoming an urban thinker by taking a peek in the Wurster Auditorium photo gallery.
The Class of 2020 worked hard and still found time to organize a variety of social activities inside the Wurster student lounge and beyond. Leave it to professional planners to plan parties that helped foster the cohort community. Enter the Student Lounge to see pictures of Planner palooza, camping trips, happy hours, and more.
Finally, where would the Class of 2020 be without the communities that supported and nourished them? The Grad-itude corner is filled with messages of appreciation for the families, friends, and partners who have contributed to the successes of the Class of 2020.The Class of 2020 would like to thank all the faculty and staff who have made our time in DCRP special. Special thanks go to Malla Hadley, Clayton Hall, Kathleen Pera and Valeria Spall for all their support and guidance, and to Mike Bond, Alejandro Blanco, Jeff Allen, and Ben Peterson for helping us with our space and technology needs. We wouldn’t have gotten to this moment without you.
