    MURP or something else?

    Hi all,

    I have the goal of becoming an environmental planner, probably a more general one, focused on consulting services.

    I graduated with a BA in Urban Planning.

    Which would provide me with a more flexible route in terms of future job prospets?

    A Masters in Urban Planning with a Focus on Sustainability

    or

    A Masters in Environmental Management/Science?

    If you have a B.A. in planning, I think getting the Masters in Environmental Management might be more helpful, but a planning masters with a strong environmental management focus might work as well.

    Either one is ok but more important is which program will help you get a internship.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
