august 11



If you could go back and study something different, what would you study?

My major was Political Science. If I could do it again, I´d study architecture or photography.

I studied engineering.
If I could go back, probably try to be less practic and studies design, architecture or arts.
It is not late!

Jane said...

I have three degrees (two in law which I use) and one was for interest (fine arts) if I could go back and do something for pleasure I would do journalism or project management. Studying is SOOO time consuming though. I couldn't face it again..

Katy said...

Medicine.

Inna said...

For me this question is quite impossible to answer as I am still in high school. Soon I have to make some decisions because this will be my last year there. I have been considering about applying to study South Asian studies, international studies or development studies.I am not yet sure though. Luckily I have still like half a year to think about this.

i studied english literature, art history and political science (yay, jane!). and i would choose architecture (yay again!) or that fairly new literature programme at leipzig university if i had to do it again. i loved it at uni, i just love to immerse myself in books. come to think of it, that's what i do for a living, so - not too bad at all...

Le blÖg d'Ötli said...

I studied law, archeology and art history... I'ld like to study philosophy...

Simple pleasure said...

I think archeology and special Egyptology.

The Bookworm said...

I studied medieval history. I wouldn't change that, but if I could start something new now it would be mathematics or chemistry.

Dana said...

i studied secondary english education and information science.
i would, instead, have studies graphic design. . . do what you love, love what you do!

Sonja said...

I would study something creative- photography, journalism, or then- languages. I have studied travel and tourism.

I was a psychology major. Did nothing with that once I realized I'd have to get my degree in social work in order to do the kind of counseling work that interested me (and then work for years as a social worker which really isn't for me). I should have majored in something related to writing. And I wish I minored in something fine arts related. Also wish I had taken acting classes (for fun of course). Many regrets regarding my college choices which were very boring and safe and contribute very little to the professional career path that I took.

julochka said...

Purple Flowers said...

I'm a rubbish student (have lots of interests but lack discipline big time; I’m more of a autodidact, really) so I’m not sure I could be bothered to do it all again (not that I applied myself too much the first time round, mind!)
Still love what I studied (English Lang & Lit) but perhaps would also (on top of that) do something on anthropology, philosophy, psychology (all fascinate me) or journalism/writing. However, I reckon the best for me would probably involve hands-on creativity as most of the above pretty much belong to the realm of the rational, so some artistic skills would most definitely be a healthy balance.
End of ra-ra-raaaamble. :)

Kari said...

hmmm what an interesting question.
Well I studied accounting and it was okay. But If I had a do over I would probably do teaching. Teaching of elementary kids.

latisha said...

well i did spanish with an emphasis on literature. not sure i would change that entirely. i would maybe add writing and painting.

caitlin said...

I think if I could go back, I would just start younger. There are so many opportunities when you are younger for you to take advantage of.

Kacie said...

I would do literature. Or maybe just stick with counseling and double major so I could also do literature.

liza said...

I studied history. I'd go back for art history or literature! I'm loving this series, Jane.

Sara said...

I studied English (Literature), modern Hebrew, a smattering of French and Spanish, and a bit of Linguistics. None of these studies led to a college degree unfortunately! To go back again...hmmmm, only if I could concentrate on what really interests me and not a lot of other courses required. So....what I'd really like to do is learn Italian, preferably in Italy!

Jeannette said...

I studied French and English and loved it, but if I could do it all over again ....Archaeology. Or philosophy. Maybe I will just do it one day ...

The Girl in the Yellow Shoes said...

I studied interpersonal communication and business. If I could do something different, I would do dental hygiene, photography or graphic design.

Vancouver's Enviro Girl said...

I went back recently to study what I love, Environmental Policy. But I would also minor in art history and library science if I could do it over again.

Anil P said...

Would love to go hunting fossils, and maybe a bit of Anthropology, Archaeology as well.

Joyce said...

I studied miller vs pabst beer. Just kidding! If I could it would be photography and design.

Are you having fun? Miss you!

Little Ms Blogger said...

I'd go to cooking school.

Paula said...

instead of business administration and political science I would go for archeology and anthropoly. Good question. left Spain last year, still miss it.

malo said...

To be a gardener or graphic design.

Liz said...

I studied nothing - I hated school and only wanted to get married. Which I did at 16 - yes 16!! I would have studied music - my absolute passion in life......

I'm no longer married in case you were wondering - but it did last 32years!!!

Diana Strinati Baur said...

Architecture, blacksmithing, and glassblowing. And I would still do ceramics. (I was a Business major).

travelingmama said...

I studied international affairs. I am thinking about graphic design or perhaps journalism (except my English teacher told me I was a horrible writer!)

Daan said...

I've studied Theatre at the university and i think I would study that again...

clairette said...

If I could go back I won't change ( Fine arts and Philosophie)) but I Dream studiing more things as Langages (Arabian, English, Spanish, Russian, Japonese....) more photography, Archéology, Litterature ... this is a long long list... Art is long and life is short said the poet...

Bonnie said...

PHOTOGRAPHY !
LANGUAGES !
ART !

Dorit said...

I have a major in English (lit+lang+his) and a minor in Modern History.
I'm glad I don't have to choose again, because I wouldn't know what to choose.
I'm just glad I have a degree which opens so many doors :)

Dominique said...

Anything related to art...

state of bliss said...

Archeology... I studied education and Czech literature and language and ended up working in accountancy anyway. But if I could chose again it would be archeology.

Ritva said...

love to be a great, great but humble gardener. the one who can talk with the birds and remembers all the names of the flowers that bloom everywhere!
