Sustainable Architecture

I wanted to know if choosing sustainable architecture for master degree is a good choice to find a job in the USA?  If it's not a good choice what field do you recommend?  I also like some other fields like site planning, interior design and architecture.  By the way at the moment I am living in Australia and will get my master here.  Thank you very much for your time and concern.

As you are probably aware, the topic of sustainable architecture / green buildings is a hot one.  There are many resources for architects and the building industry on the topic.

One in particular deals with South Australia

Now, the question as to whether it is a good choice for securing a position in the U.S.  In general, I would say yes, but I would suggest you research firms in which you are interested to see if their commitment to sustainable architecture makes your choice a good one.

Another resource to consider is the Committee on the Environment of the AIA (see below)

Ultimately, firms hire individuals for many different reasons - skills, experience, fit, etc.  Is an expertise in sustainable architecture one of them?
