I am in the process of applying to graduate schools and have become very interested in an Environmental Science and Management program. There is a specialization in Conservation Planning, but I am also very interested in physical planning and the built environment.
Basically, I am wondreing what opportunities or limitations this grad program would create when I re-enter the working world, potentially in the planning field. Is there such a large difference between conservation and urban planning that skill sets would be non-transferable? Would this experience be seen as not fully applicable?
Also, the plan is to live in California. The dream is to work as a planning or development consultant in a private firm, but that is subject to change I suppose. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
