    going for MUP with an Architecture degree

    Hi
    I am a college freshman.....and...thinking about majoring in architecture (pre-professional program).....after ...learning all about the creative work of the architecture department here at my school.......
    But for master's degree, I would like to study urban planning....

    What kind of advantages can there be....if I go for the MUP program with an Arhitecture background?

    Any input would be much appreciated...Thanks!!!

    I think it is an excellent combination. Locally in Milwaukee it is acutally a dual degree program and they call it SARUP - School of Architecture and Urban Planning.

    When I am interviewing candidates for jobs, SARUP candidates steo to the front of the line.

    Not Bad

    The B.Arch. and MUP combo is good if you plan to work in a major urban area with lots of design needs. I would just suggest that you obtain and keep your architecture registration. A JD or Public Administration masters could be good, it just depends on what your long term goals are.
