I'm a semester away from graduating from FAU (Florida International University) with a BUD. I recently found out that FAU's got literally the lowest pass rate for the AICP exam, as if the warnings about pursuing the unaccredited BUD weren't enough. That's a sunk cost and there's no going back -- the point for me was to be able to recycle my architecture credits so that I could finish my BA in a a year.
These are the options I'm thinking about...
Project Management (either with OpenUniversity, as a certificate, or as a Masters program in a traditional, face to face university)
Architecture (any, including landscape)
My end goal is honestly anything that will require constant travel, like working on a project for months at a time. Just an atmosphere of constant change. I practically don't even really care what I do as long as that trait is fulfilled and I get a minimum salary that'll afford me the basics of living (shelter, food, maybe going out two nights per month). I don't even want to buy a home or a car or have a family necessarily, I just want to see the world, and it'd be nice to be doing something productive while I'm travelling like work. That'd make me a happy camper.
Another question: In the case that I do want an internship after I graduate next semester, what do you guys think about the idea of volunteering abroad in a WWOOF program while working a nearby internship?
Finally, my friends and I in similar careers keep talking about Brazil as being the next best place in need of urban redevelopment. Agree? Disagree? Go ahead, break my heart.
PS: I'm 24 in a month, if you wanted to get an idea of where I'm at in my life.
