I've been thinking of finishing my bachelor's degree through one of the online/distance learning options instead of taking classes at the university I'm currently enrolled at. The reason being that most of the universities around here only offer undergrad classes during the day. I could finish a bachelor's in planning but I would have to turn my life upside down to do it since I work full-time (and must continue to do so).
So, my new plan is to possibly finish my bachelor's degree online then do a master's in planning at one of the local universities. University of Texas as well as Texas State University both offer graduate degrees in geography and the classes are at night, making it easier for working adults to finish their programs.
I guess the question now is *what* undergrad degree would be best for someone wanting to enter a planning field. I have searched all over the place and there are no online bachelor's programs in planning. The closest I've found is a Geography degree and an Environmental Management degree. I have also heard that many planners do their undergrad work in Public Administration. Is this true?
What kind of undergrad degree would you guys suggest for someone wanting to do a Masters Degree in Planning?
EDIT: Forgot to add that I have a Certificate in GIS from Texas State University.
