Hi. I'm currently in high school and soon I will be applying to university. For a long time I wanted to be an urban planner but I'm not interested in policies and things like that. I'm more interested in redevelopment/renewal, historical preservation, transportation, and development. I'm also strongly interested in the design aspect and aesthetics of streetscapes and buildings. I heard that a lot of planners mainly do policy work which is a bit of a turn off. I want to work on design aspects but also the planning aspects such as development, etc. Is there a career that focuses on both of these aspects?
Additionally, I heard that jobs for planning are scarce so should I get a degree in Architecture or Landscape Architecture to make myself seem more attractive and versatile. If I were to get an Architectural degree, should it Landscape or just Architecture? Which would be better? Thanks for your time.
