I am wondering if people can give me some advice on whether obtaining an MS in Geography vs. an MURP/Regional Planning Degree is a good idea. The school I wish to attend, because of its proximity to where I want to live and my connections here, offers an MS in Geography with a planning track. I spoke with a local planner and he told me that getting that degree shouldn't cause me too many problems in getting employed. Is it that bad of a thing to get an MS in Geography?
I was accepted to University of Albany in NY, but am waiting on four more applications and one of those is the institution that offers the MS in Geography. Any opinions would be great!
