I am an undergrad in Urban Studies and Planning at UCSD, and I've found the urban planning/urban design questions & answers in this forum really useful.
Something I haven't seen on here though is the difference in the urban planning/urban design world of having a PhD versus a masters. I know in some more industry-heavy field, like computer science, they put you on totally different career paths. Is that the case here? If so, what kinds of careers would be available to people with either of those degrees? How can I determine which type of degree is best for me?
Thank you! I need all the help I can get, I'm planning on applying for next fall!
