So I made it official a few weeks ago: I am now a double Spanish and Urban Studies Major with a double minor in English and either GIS, Human Geography, or Sociology. Although our program is being improved with more requirements being added, I want to prepare myself for as much of graduate school as possible. I'm not sure where I want to go to graduate school (either DePaul Chicago or UIC Chicago), but the two programs are different: DePaul is mangagement and UIC is accrediated planning. So, with al that in mind, I'm kind of chooisng the classes I have to take on my own. What do you guys think of this curriculum?
These Classes I will take for sure:
History of Suburbia
History of Cities
Majority-Minority Relations (Sociology)
Principles and Practices of Urban Planning
2 GIS Courses
1 more GIS class, or just getting a full minor
Public Policy and Administration
--more sociology classes for a minor?
--more geography classes for a minor?
some sort of micro/macro economics????
Also, Ive read that it's good to be good at GIS...but not too good, or you'll become the "GIS person" on the job. So maybe just take a few classes in it, then get a minor in human geography or sociology instead?
