Hello! Does anyone have experience in Pratt's UPM program? I was really fascinated because it's the only program I found that focuses specifically on placemaking and it seems like people who come out of the program will be really well-rounded. I'm also interested in gaining more exposure to urban design and it looks promising that the program is within the architecture school. However, since it's not a traditional planning degree, I'm not too sure what the jobs are like after graduation or how employable I'd be without an accredited degree.

Any insights would be helpful! Thanks xx
