Im new to the forums and I had a few questions about the planning field.
I currently work in a legal/public administration field and was gearing myself towards law school. However after observing the legal life, I decided that law is not the career choice for me. Recently, I have been thinking about pursuing a masters in Planning. However, I have a few concerns.
First of all, my major in college was a B.A in history. So even if I recieved an MA in planning, I was wondering if I was at a significant disadvantage when it came to finding a job.
Second, If I were to pursue a masters degree I would like to recieve an education that focuses on practicality over theory. I realize that schools like Cal, USC and UCLA are considered top tier schools (UCLA history alum myself). But many have told me that the MA programs are more theory focused. That being said, I was wondering if anyone graduated from Cal Poly SLO or Pomona and could share their experiences.
