I am hoping to get some honest feedback on different educational tracks for a career in planning. Ultimately, I'd like to be involved in sustainable urban regeneration (either public or private sector). From the job postings I've been reviewing, it's begining to look as though 1) a bachelors in civil engineering might be more usefull than one in urban planning and 2) getting a masters is unavoidable (I hope to complete that overseas, possibly in Scotland).
I am currently at the College of Charleston in South Carolina (non-accredited) and am worried that perhaps I should switch schools (Cal Poly Tech?) and maybe even majors. Given that I am 30 and this is my second career, I am keenly aware of how I am spending my time and don't want to waste any of it. If anyone can give me some insight into which degree program will ultimately prove more useful and/or recommend undergrad programs, I would *greatly* appreciate it! Or if you just want to throw out any other nuggets of advice, I'll take those too!
Thanks so much,
