Question - which field?

Post by 45561 » Sun Mar 11, 2007 7:43 pm

Hi, I'm a first-year biology student in the UK, and already the prospect of choosing second-year modules preys on my mind. Like a lot of scientists I'm interested in discovering new things and in how things work, but in biology there are so many different areas of study in which to do both these things.
What I'd like to know is, how did you decide what to specialise in, or how did you know which areas of biology really interested you and were worth pursuing?

Views are welcome from everyone, and I apologise if this is in the wrong place, I don't yet know my way around.

Keep studying. I fell in love with evolutionary theory early in my classwork, invertebrates when I took a class on them, then parasites when I went to graduate school in invertebrate zoology.

There are lots of different types of biology fields. and it depends on what you want to do what you are interested if you are interested in medicine the biomedicine would be good but if you like plants there is a whole field , and also zoology in animals. i think that you should make a list then of what you would like to do then shorlist them down until you realise to do what you want to do.

if you still are unsure about what you want to do then i think that you should keep your options open and give it some time.
