Hey! I want to be a transportation planner, so I'm considering getting an MA in urban planning. My question is, is it really hard to get a job that way? I was also considering getting a civil engineering master's — I'm a bit less interested in the work, but hear it's easier to get a job.
It's confusing, because online searches about urban planning yield some people being like "the field is growing!" and other's being like "getting a job is impossible," but I wonder how that applies to transportation planning specifically. Thanks!
I'm part of a group called Open New York, which pushes for more housing, and our book club is about to start reading "Building the Skyline: The Birth and Growth of Manhattan's Skyline". The first meeting will discuss chapters 1-3, and it'll take place on Thursday, June 6, location TBD. Hope to see you there!
