Which is the best pathway into Urban Design?

I graduated with a degree in English Literature in 2005. I haven't had much success in finding employment so I'm starting to explore new career possibilities, one of which is Urban Design. I'm mostly interested in designing / redesigning the physical fabric of city plazas and other communal spaces. Which university pathway would offer the best scope for entering this line of work- a degree in Architecture, or a course in Urban Planning followed by an MA in Urban Design?
I'm at a very early stage in researching this subject, so any other information or advice would be greatly appreciated. As a UK resident, I would especially like to find out about the prospects for working in the Urban Design field in East Asia.
