Urban Planning Major

Hi, I am not sure if this is the best place to post this But, I just wanted to see if anyone had any insight. I am currently trying to figure out where I want to go. UC Berkeley has an Urban Studies Major. It is in their college of environmental design, it seems to be a textbook urban planning major. UCLA has graduate degrees in Urban Planning, but it doesn’t have any undergrad programs that seem to fit " Perfectly". I ended up applying as Public Affairs in the Luskin school of public affairs. They have a minor in Urban Studies, which I would do if I went.

I personally would rather go to LA for the social dynamics and other nonacademic factors. But, I worry that choosing the public affairs major over the Cal program would ultimately harm the career I want. I was wondering if anyone had any insight into either program for an aspiring urban planner?

There are plenty of class options in the UCLA public affairs course related to urban planning. If you prefer UCLA then by all means go there, it won’t hold you back at all.
