I have spent the last month thinking about what course I should take, wondering what it would be like and where it would lead me. Currently the options are:
- Geography & Geology
- Physical Geography
- Human Geography
Having gone down mostly the science route at school. I decided to take geology and geophysics which proved to be a total disaster. I don't have a natural interest for geology so the last two semesters have been spent being miserable and demotivated as I fall behind on the work.
Geography and Geology are broad science degrees. I thought it'd be useful to have geography/mathematics as a national curriculum subject if I wanted to become a teacher. However there's the problem that I might end up in a similar position to now if I go ahead with it.
There's psychology. This course is attached with so much uncertainty as I'd no idea where I'd be going with the degree and what's actually involved. Considering that it'd need to be BPS accredited there would also be a large biological/statistical element involved. Would I enjoy such thing? Would my interest in psychology diminish when actually being required to work? There's also the additional problem of my written english being sub-par. Defintely a whole load of uncertainty.
Difficult to shake off the feeling that this decision will shape my future permenantly so I don't want to make another mistake. What path route did people here take and what they think about their decisions, why did you take it?
Any guidance would be much appreciated.
