I'm at a point that I need to quickly make a key decision in my future: do I go for the Geography major that will seriously lighten my coursework or do I take classes that are more directly applicable to my future job as a city planner?
The core classes are the same, like GIS and map interpretation. Also, does it really matter which one I choose? Does internship experience matter more? Are certain cities going to be bias towards one emphasis or the other?
If it totally does not matter, then I could go with Global studies, which has less classes. Then I could work as an intern at the same time. But if I go for Urban Planning, then I'd have to wait on the internship and just take lots of classes.
Either way, I know I want to be an urban planner.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
