Changing academic direction (am I being foolish?)

Trying to transfer to a four year college, and changing direction mid -stream. Am I being foolish to consider shifting from aiming for a landscape architecture degree to one in ecological engineering, especially when engineering colleges have completely different requirements than what I've been focusing on?

architecture 101 classes

I don't know much about architecture, except that I really enjoying time looking at good examples of it - and will go see places just for that. Where can I find free or low cost classes to learn more about architecture? (Second choice would be a good online resources). I'm not only looking for classes (which I can do via google), but people's experiences with them I am in DC. Transit accessibility is more or less a necessity.

Calling All Architects

What's it like being an architect? What are the fun tasks, the dull ones, and the tedious ones? As an architect in the US, is it hard to be artistically 'independent'; are most architects there doomed to designing cookie-cutter McMansions? Have you ever considered a different profession? If so, what? How does one go from an undergraduate to a full-fledged architect (i.e., what sort of schooling, certification and jobs do you need to become an architect in the US). Finally, what are some schools in the US for architectural training, or how do I go about finding them myself? Answers to any, some or all of these questions would be much appreciated.
