Is a LA degree/license overkill for contracting
I have recently transferred to a 4 year school after completing my associates in landscape design from my county college. I am in the landscape architecture program at my current school, but thinking about switching into the environmental planning and design major with the option of landscape industry. My goal is to have my own design build company. I want to do high end residential and commercial work such as plantings and hardscapes etc. I am thinking about going towards the industry major because I want to learn more of the business side of things and sustainability and what not. I do not really want to have to do a 2 year internship either after I graduate. My question is if I switch out of the LA program will that hurt me in the future? If I get my LA degree will that help me a lot in getting clients? Is it overkill? Is it worth the time, do I need it? I'm very torn. If anyone has any input please don't be afraid to share.
