Hello! Which schools fit this criteria?
-Preferably an urban setting, though an area such as Chapel Hill would not be excluded
-Money is a consideration - so cost of living/tuition and availability of graduate assistantships is very important
-Policy oriented program
-Focus or courses related to economic and downtown development
-Faculty involved in local community
As of now: thinking about VT (Alexandria) and UNC. Columbia is another possibility but the thought of living in NYC seems daunting due to high cost of living.
Thank you in advance!
