I'm in my final year of my second degree in GeoChemistry. My first degree was "Life Sciences" which was basically for people in science who couldn't make up their mind. My course load was mainly filled with psych classes and geography courses.
I initially wanted to be a Neuroscientist, but the program was re-evaluated and it suddenly had prerequisites that I couldn't get.
Now I'm in Geochem, and my course list for this semester is:
- Aquatic BioGeoChemistry (I owe this class all my water chem knowledge)
- Optical Crystallography (Physics of optics in minerals and rocks)
- Beginner's Latin (I was taking Japanese before but poor Iwai-sensei didn't have funding to do 4th year Japanese)
- Climate (We basically talk about the science part behind climate)
- Astronomy: Origins of the Universe (IN MY OPINION, this class is like review of all the physics I have ever taken, minus the math. We LEARN about Force = mass*gravity but we never have to use it in class. I sleep a lot in this class, my engineer friends who are also in the class and I dub it "naptime" class. There are people in that class who type FRANTICALLY though)
If I can't get a job working for my Chem prof, then I will try to get a job in the government (MNR) or maybe take some bio courses and be a Marine BioChemist. That would be fun, since I have my scuba diving certification :D
