I simply want to compare genetic divergence between two populations using two different marker types, microsatellites and snps. What would be a suggested approach? I realize there are probably several ways to go about this, but any general idea would be great. Thanks.

As @microfuge mentioned, Fst between populations is a good measure. Also, try structure program, it gives an idea about gene flow between populations and also calculates genetic distance between populations.

Fst is a good measure of differentiation between populations

I would highly recommend the software Arlequin. I can calculate diverse array of statistics for microsat data and is made by the experts in the field. http://cmpg.unibe.ch/software/arlequin35/
