    Dual Degrees?

    Any of you seasoned planners have a dual degree? If so, what are they in and have you found them to be beneficial to your career? I ask because after my internship this summer in the county planning department, I have decided that this facet of planning is not for me and that I enjoy the public policy creation aspects of planning. Considering pulling off a dual degree option in grad school since it would only require one extra class per semester and one additional semester. It would be a joint Master of City & Regional Planning and Master of Public Policy.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Nope. A BA degree in environmental studies and planning and the consumption of wine. Well I guess that's a duel degree....wait, no sheep skin for the later. I forget sometimes.
