hey everyone, im new to cyburbia and have been poking around some threads tonight but couldnt quite find an answer to this question. sorry if it has already been discussed!
i have been interested in radical urban planning for a while, but just recently started looking into grad school prospects. it seems most programs have at least some bit of an environmental aspect built into them, but i really want to focus on environmental issues and planning internationally.
in my dream world, for instance, i would work in central and south america, helping create sustainable areas that really foster the idea of community, tradition, etc. i am open to attending grad school abroad, as well, but unfortunately am not fluent enough in any other language to be studying at that level.
i would really appreciate any feedback on schools with good international specialization programs, or any instructors with knowledge in that field with whom i could put together an independent study.
also, as i have no background or experience with planning (ba in anthropology), i have been thinking this spring and summer would be a good time for an internship. that is something i would REALLY like to be able to do abroad, if possible/affordable. does anyone know of a good place to look for an opportunity like that? or have experience with something similar through americorps? (im thinking the grad school stipend will come in handy)
