    Just kind of question on what everyone here majored in/plan to major in, and who dropped out, that kinda stuff. :)

    Based the list off my Uni (University of Canterbury) course list. The stuff in brackets is not really indicative, it's just subjects that may fall under the catergory.

    I am well aware that I may not have covered many courses out there - I'm sorry, but there's not enough spaces.

    I'm going to be majoring in two or maybe even three of the following: History, English (Creative Writing), Classical Studies, Japanese. Yeah, I'm going to get real rich. :rolleyes:

    I've got a BSc in Computer Science, and I'm strongly thinking about starting to study a BSc Economics via correspondence because I dont think I want to be a programmer for the rest of my life.

    Im currently doing a new and shiny course called corporate systems management. IT and management basically. We are looking to become the people who know enough of the tech lingo to communicate with the programmers and also know how to dumb it down for heads of department and higher authorities.
    Really good course so far (just over half way through) and should make me very rich should I pursue business analysis or open my own bisuness.

    Economics. Not much to say about that really. My leaning is slightly more in macroeconomy and analyzing montary and financial policy than microeconomy which I really don't like. I'm also taking courses in Political Sciences, Public Adminstration, Accounting, German and Russian. As one might guess my carere target would be somewhere within the civil service.

    EDIT: I'm not sure which bracket to pick really, I'm not sure if the commerece really fits but then sociology is not quite right either. Still economics is as clean as economy goes so I guess commerece is close enough.

    [​IMG] Computer Science/Other

    Starting a Computer Games Development four year course in September of this year after a year of Computer Science at Bournemouth University.

    Leftafter my course path was cancelled due to a retarded Dean and a series of unfortunate staff.

    By the end of the year I was only attending when my friends asked if I wanted to meet up. Still haven't passed the first year because they've misplaced my very first Web Application Design coursework.

    I've got to choose whether to drop either Latin, Philosophy or Maths for next year. Chances are that I'll drop Latin and do a joint degree in Philosophy and Maths.

    (Organic) Chemistry. :)

    Planing to push it all the way to a PhD, but we'll see how it goes.

    I'm studying pharmacy, actually, but the good folks at the organic chemistry institute on my faculty let me hang out there with them most of the time.

    P.S. Lucky are you who get to pick which courses (subjects) to take in a year. All of my ones are predetermined.

    I think about doing either psyc or sociology major maybe double. I am going into my 2nd year of college. I was thinking of taking up Philosophy but you can't make any money with it.

    Ditto for me.

    I graduated with a degree in BS Applied Economics. Currently halfway through my gap year right now though, taking Spanish in Europe and traveling. Planning to try and find work in the U.S first quarter of next year.

    Geez, I thought there'd be a lot more lawyers. Where's our mod team?

    Seems to be a large focus on Computer Science, which I guess is to be expected, really.

    Because I'm interested in them. I know that I probably won't make any money out of them, but I'd probably regret it if I didn't do them. OTOH, if you ask me in four years I might regret that I didn't take something more economic, like, say, Economics, or Management, or something.

    tbh, it's the stuff I'm good at. No good at Law, Science, Maths, Engineering, Marketing...what else can I do?

    The coming year I will be graduating from my Uni of Applied Siences, as a Bachelor of Human Resource Management.

    There wasn't really a suitable bracket for it, so I picked teaching, sociology, management and other. With HRM I can go in a lot of direction, I could research companies, advise mangement, regular HR work, become a trainer/teacher, a school dean etc.
