    Dual Degrees

    There are two specific areas I'd like to tackle for my masters: 1. Environmental Management, 2. Third-world urban development. While in some ways related, they require seemingly too much attention to be completed under one degree. For my situation, though, that may not be a problem. I can do both: one now electronically, and one live once I return home. How would employers respond to that? Do they see indecisiveness, a career student, or an uber-planner?

    Moderator note:
    I moved this and bumped it, because I felt it was a career advice type of question and may get a different readership (and therefore maybe answer) than in the student lounge.

    I suppose the answer lies within your resume, and in your interview. I'm definately not an employer (Architecture/Political Science Student), so I can't give you a reliable answer. Ask a professor, or even better a planner (perhaps not in the area you are looking to work in), or an assistant.
