I am now considering possibility to get Masters in Urban Planning. I have read lots of threads about what this profession is (and what it is not as well), but this threads are mostly about some particular issues, not about the profession itself.
What I really wonder is if there is any course or resource that could make kind of induction into the profession. Main duties, typical tasks etc. Or, maybe, some people to speak/chat/mail with who could make such induction.
The thing is that I live in Moscow, Russia, so there are really no universities that I could visit in something like open doors day to talk with the teachers and professionals.
What would you suggest.
