I am currently a student majoring in environmental studies. When I decided on this major I hoped that I could get into a career in what I would later find out was "planning". I am taking an urban planning course now and have some more planning classes I have to take for my undergrad. It has definitely sparked my interest in a possible career. Can anyone give me an idea if having a background/undergrad in environmental studies might help me in a planning career? I am “planning” (sorry, had to) on going to grad school for a masters in planning but would like to unlimitedly focus more on environmental impacts/aspects. Anyway, might this make me any more marketable or appealing to an organization? Or as I have read on here by some is "is really doesn't matter what your undergrad is when you get a masters in planning"
