    Transportation planning online schools

    I am looking to transition from the IT field to transportation planning, and I live in Tampa, Florida. Does anyone know of a school where I can pursue a master's degree in planning online? Any in Florida?

    USF has a fledgling Planning program, otherwise your options in Florida are: UF, FSU & FAU for a masters. As for online programs, I do not know of any. I think Iowa State offers some online couses, but I dont think they offer a degree online. Planning is not really the type of program that conducive to online studies anyways, its a hands-on type profession and best done in person. Some may disagree with that assessment, though. If you want to focus on Transportation Planning, look into specializations and course taught at those schools, all of them have a decent transportation section and professors.

    Many thanks beach_bum!

    I have looked into USF and am trying to get in. I was starting to look at online alternatives, since I have a family. I'm currently looking for full time work as a computer programmer, since that's what I did for over 20 years. Transportation planning is my long term goal.

    Iowa State does offer an online Masters in Community Development in partnership with a number of other schools in the region. Here is the link: http://www.agde.iastate.edu/programs/cdev.php

    Penn State also offers an online Masters in Community & Economic Development... http://www.worldcampus.psu.edu/Maste...t_mcedev.shtml
