Degrees that go well with architecture

TenLines

Hi,

Current 2nd year student studying architecture. I'm going to be honest, I am a bit scared I won't be able to get a job in my dream career when I graduate. I figured perhaps maybe holding another degree can help me be more valuable for firms. 

So my question is what other degrees will be useful in combination with architecture? I'm currently considering minoring in sustainability, I've always has strong interest in it. I'm extremely bad at advanced math, so engineering is most likely a no go. I would love to hear some recommendations.

Also, if you also have just any general advice to share about internships and employment, please comment them! I'd really appreciate it.

Coffee goes well with architecture... sprinkle some design and you're done! lol

If you're interested in sustainability, specializing in building science for high performance buildings or net zero design work might be something for you, should pay well too. Don't think you need another degree for that though.

There's a large amount of related industries you can go into, anything design related works. Know someone who even went into waterpark design after their degree...

I find 72°F/22°C to be about right (not for coffee - coffee should be around 130°F/54°C, or iced).

Holding a degree in structural engineering on top of architecture would be pretty valuable.
