What class do you recommend?

Postby evointrigued » Fri Nov 30, 2007 3:48 pm

I'd like to do something with genetics (maybe something more chemistry oriented). Out of these elective biology courses, is there one you recommend?

- General Botany
- Microbiology and Immunology
- Human Anatomy & Physiology I
- Ecology

immunology, the others dont have much to do with chemistry.

I'd love to take ecology to become a creationist propaganda refuting machine. That's always been a daydream of mine, but realistically, I have a feeling microbiology has the higher job demand. Actually, if I'm interested in where job demand will be, is Anatomy and Physiology the path I should be taking?

I love learning about genetics. It would be optimal to get some sort of job with it one day. Would microbiology make the most sense for learning about DNA chemistry and such?

A&P is a very good course IMO, but it will make more sense after MicroBio, for the physio part. IMO

On a side note, I have heard that genetic councelors earn a nice salary.

Hmm. I want to do something with genetics. That is my primary goal. I don't know if that's unrealistic?

It's not just about money or I'd do something else. I like biology the most. Most subdivisions are of equal interest, so I have to pay attention to other factors outside of interest (like money).

Having said that, I'm sticking with microbiology. Thanks for the feedback.

Molecular genetics is interesting.
