    Prospective Student in Va.

    I've enjoyed browsing Cyburbia forums for some months and felt I should finally introduce myself. I'm interested in Community Development and Transportation Planning (emphasis on public transp. and alternative transportation), and I'm considering applying to a Master's program for Fall 2008. I'm finishing a Master's in cultural anthropology which actually I think would combine well with Urban Planning. Hopefully those in charge of admissions would see it the same way. Any thoughts?

    Welcome from Boston. Yes, I think you could combine planning pretty well with your current degree.

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Hello, from Irving. TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
