This is my first post so let me first introduce myself. I live in Seattle and work for AIA Seattle doing green building and sustainable development as well as managing a gallery there. My educational background is in philosophy, but I'm planning on a career in planning.
At this point, I'm trying to decide on grad school issues. I'm debating between landscape architecture and planning. I've searched the forums already and read the prev. threads dealing with this subject, but I have afew nagging questions. My main interests are in the intersection of green building strategies with urban design and historic preservation.
With these interests, which makes more sense: an MLA or a MUP with a certificate in Urban Design (like the program at UW). Do issues like licensure, the ability to stamp/certify drawings/plans, etc make Landscape Architecture a more flexible/marketable option than Urban Planning?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
