Hi, I just recently decided that a career in planning is something that I think I would enjoy, but here's where the questions start.. I plan on starting the University of Phoenix (online school) soon and getting my bachelors of arts in information technology (since I also have a big interest in computers) and then after that getting my masters in urban and regional planning.
At the moment, i'm thinking of Eastern Washington University in Spokane (which will probably end up changing.. haha), which offers a Master of Urban & Regional Planning and also a Bachelor of Arts in Urban and Regional Planning. I was wondering if it's a better idea just to get my Associates, then get a BAURP and then a MURP (or if it's required to get a MURP? I really don't know much about college..), or to do my original plan.
I was thinking it would be nice to have both, that way it's not like im a "one trick pony" (or whatever that expression is) and have something to fall back on if I don't like one or the other. Would employers like me more if I have a bachelors AND a masters, or would they just see the masters and not care about the bachelors?
Anyways, sorry if this is rambling and not making any sense (let me know if I was vague on anything), but i'm typing this as it's coming! Any help is appreciated. Thanks
