What are you studying at University?

Unread postby Lochlan » 21st April, 2018, 5:46 pm

University (College for some of y'all) is a large portion of education for many which helps them attain the credentials needed for their desired careers. I thought it might be interesting to discuss what you are planning on doing, doing currently or have done at university level, or if you aren't doing it at all. I'd like to see what each user wants to study and why essentially :english:

I myself am planning on studying either biochemistry or microbiology, since I'd like to go into a lab based career, likely something to do with pharmaceuticals/vaccines. It seems like something I could do to help others when it comes to things like disease. It might not be the most significant help, but every part counts imo.

So, what about y'all?

I'm eager to study math. I've been enamored by it ever since sophomore year. The reason why I want to study it is because it's very logic-based and used in a lot of fields. So far I've taken college-level courses up to Calculus 2 with some introductory computer science, so we'll see if I maintain that level of enthusiasm for the subject in university. I ideally would want to go on to become a research mathematician or math instructor working with disadvantaged students - maybe even at an HBCU - and try to increase the amount of disadvantaged youth in math. Again, we'll see if I change my mind later on and choose to become a lounge club dancer.

@Karl Maths is great as it's useful literally everywhere, even after studying maths for years, you can change your mind regarding the course you want to take last minute and it will still apply :D

Currently studying a Bachelor of Aviation, and a simultaneous Graduate Certificate of Aviation (Piloting). It’s busy as hell and it’s not uncommon for me to have classes scheduled 6 days a week plus homework/study.

Previously I’ve completed a Bachelor of Commerce with a marketing major. It was ok, but not what o want to do as a career. Looking back it was nice though as I only had like 12 hours of class a week.

Currently studying Information Security, a strand of Computer Science. Basically it's the 'hacking' degree, where they teach you all sorts of things to do with cybersecurity, malware, forensics, all that good stuff.

Previously I was studying Physics. Don't study Physics unless you're either mad, or are madly in love with the subject.

Took one semester of physics, I can confirm the latter statement.

I'm planning on studying biochemistry and biotechnology at the university of Ghent. I've been a sucker for bio since I was 14 and last year I discovered my love for biochemistry specifically.
It is a very contemporary course, since scientists don't really know a whole lot about it at the moment and they discover new things every year which piques my interest even more and makes me eager to (maybe) discover some new things.

I'm planning on studying plant and microbial biology. I think I'll likely major in that, and minor in German. But, I'm still very flexible with my goals. I think ultimately I want to be a botanist or a librarian. And either way, I'll speak German. We'll see how it goes.

Honestly, if you do that study plant and microbial biology and speak German, the only thing separating you from Mendel is that he was a priest.

I don't think a majority of us are science-inclined. It just that, for whatever reason, the social science and humanities fans aren't vocal in this thread. They exist, but I don't know why they aren't here.

studying a Bachelor of Literature, however sometimes I think it's a mistake, but I'm not really sure it is :keke:

My ideal unis (Oxford/Durham) are in my own country, but both are pretty much as far as I could get from where I am now without getting on a plane (or going to Scotland). I'm considering applying abroad but idk where I would, and I'm not sure if it would fit me as of right now. I can see the appeal though! :keke:
