I was hoping that some of you may have some advice/ experiences to share on getting a dual masters in Urban Planning and Historic Preservation. As I am approaching UP/HP largely from a theoretical perspective, I am not sure of the real world usage of the dual degrees. I also have not studied either in great depth, so that adds another layer of hesitancy on my part. However, I am immensely interested in the interplay of the two and them as individual subjects while I lack direct vocational experience in either field.
So I am in a bit of a bind as I really enjoy the idea of studying both HP and UP, but am still debating the extent of the combination of the two's "real world value." At this moment, I would ideally love to work for an organization comparable to the World Monuments Fund... so the degrees would prove useful..? Furthermore, because I am not sure exactly what I want to do career-wise, so am I under the false pretense that they would enable me to have more options? Also, for anyone else who has taken this academic route, what are their thoughts in general?
Thank you for your help... as you can see, I am doing a bit of soul-searching about my life's direction, so any words on the subject would be most appreciated!!
