I was wondering if choosing a Public Policy orientated Urban Planning program over one focused on Urban Design is likely to have a big effect on the kind of work you do as a planner after you graduate.
I would imagine that specializing in the Public Policy area would give you the oppurtunity to be making decisions at the macro rather than micro level. Which would probably be more interesting and rewarding in the long run. And I imagine it would pay better to? Is this true?
