You pose a very good point. Not everyone will become a designer, but in order to be a designer, what is the best curriculum to go through in an undergraduate/graduate program that would better one's chances of becoming a designer?

I agree, there needs to be a balance in both theory and the structural/schematic knowledge also. Whether this can be obtained at one school or two or three I do not know. This is what my question is. Is it better to attend one college that is more theory based as an undergrad and then transfer to a college that is more structurally based? Vise Versa? Is it better to stay at one school for an undergraduate degree and graduate degree if the school is more theory based? Structurally based? It's more of an open ended question I think.
