I am currently in academia, about to finish my PhD in a humanities discipline, but I have decided to pursue an alternate career. I am deciding between urban planning, urban design and landscape architecture but need to know more about what these people actually do to decide.
Are there planning jobs in which you get to do mostly physical planning, site planning? I am interested in the spatial aesthetic aspects of cities but also logistics such as transportation (and how the two work together).
Would I do better in the private or public sector? And depending on the answer, which of the three degrees would be best?
Do private planners have to travel a lot? Is their lifestyle similar to business consultants?
