Recently finished an honours BA in an unrelated subject. I have always planned on getting some kind of professional degree afterwards, and I am very interested in urban planning.
It seems there are a variety of ways to break into the field; I have no experience at this point. What would be the best option in the midst of these troublesome economics times?
1) Do an accelerated BA? (2 years)
2) Do an associate degree, work as a planning tech and gaining experience, then apply for an M.Plan?
3) Go right into an M.Plan with no experience etc.?
4) Do something else? - for example, GIS?
Thanks for any help/insight!
