Graduate Degrees Related to Urban Design & Planning


Hi guys, I am practicing architect for 8 years and contemplating to take a break in my career and pursue a graduate studies in the field of urban design. However I do not want to embark on another pure design studies and am pretty much looking to pick up different skill sets which will complement my career advancement as an urban designer/planner. 

What are the relevant courses? Are real estate and geography degrees useful for urban design/planning career? How about data science or urban analytics? 

Could someone please recommend the popular schools for those degrees?
