I am a sophomore at the University of South Florida. I am thinking about attending graduate school for Architecture or Urban Planning. What would be a good undergraduate degree for either of these?
I am currently majoring with B.S. in Economics. My reasoning is that I feel like Economics offers the best bang for my buck, and leaves me with a practical degree applicable to many fields, god forbid I change my mind in the future. I also believe Economics gives me an edge in the workplace, no matter which path I choose. Not to mention my work offers tuition reimbursement for business degrees, which really helps the pocketbook. Does this justify a degree in Economics?
More importantly, is it an appropriate choice as a precursor to Architecture and/or Urban Planning? What would be a better choice in your opinion? Would a degree in something such as Geography or Environmental Science be better? For a better reference, here is a list of the majors my school offers: Majors - Undergraduate Admissions at the University of South Florida
Thank you so much!
