I am just looking for opinions on whether it makes sense for me to pursue an Urban Studies M.S. at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville or transferring to UNC-Charlotte and pursuing an M.A. in Locational Analysis.
Personally, I am more interested in a career in location analysis/research, market research, real estate development location and regional economic development.
UNC-Charlotte seems to offer more specialized classes with more of what I'm interested in. It would seem the SIUE Urban Studies M.S. program would be too broad and I'd be taking more classes that would entail Anthropology and also Sociology instead of my main interests which are more of the Economic Geography variety. I know the Urban Studies program includes a bit of that, but based on what I see it doesn't compare to the UNC-Charlotte program.
I am just wondering if I could get by with an Urban Studies M.S. based on my interests or would going to UNC-Charlotte really be a wiser move? If anyone could provide some advice on the matter it would be greatly appreciated.
