    Dual programs in landscape architecture and planning

    Does anyone know of any? Looking to go back in a few years after I am AICP certified and pursue a double masters in planning and LA.

    UNC-Chapel Hill has one, though technically the landscape architecture work is done at NC State.

    Sure....

    The University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center or UCDHSC (drives JNA nuts when I call it this...he he he....) still has a dual MURP/LA program

    Ok, I'll bite:

    Why?

    From your post you mentioned being able to get AICP certified in the next couple of years. I assume that means that you have some planning background. IMHO, a planning masters in addition to the MLA wouldn't get you much more than either of them alone.

    Besides, a MLA is typically a 3-year course of study, and the planning degree would probably add a year or so.

    I guess it all boils down to what you want to do. If you want to be a LA, then just get that degree. If you want to be a planner, get the planning degree. If you want to be an urban designer, then go that road.

    YMMV.

    UC-Berkeley has a joint programme as well in Planning and Landscape Arch.
