Hey, does anybody know where I can find a degree to suit my interests? =/ So far no one has been able to..

I'm basically into:
- Travelling
- Cultures
- Product Design
- Animals
- Languages - French
- Architecture
- Photography- Pref. Travel/Marine Photography
- Nature

Hmm...yeah. They don't need to all be brought into one degree lol, but what sort of degrees could I be looking at, that might suit these interests and be used when I complete it? Don't mind combining.

I looked at medicine...but I haven't done A-Level biology or chemistry, because my college has a reputation for being bad at it. And medicine doesn't do science foundation years at uni - as far as I know.

But please if you think you know any information that might help, say something, because I'm soooo stuck!!! :(

Why maths?? :P
I've already started A2s anyway unless I stay longer.
Which I don't really want to..
I kept my options opened as I was unsure, and now major backfire has taken place. ><

google --> deamonolgy

Some links, 3 pages, two point back here.


google --> vampireolgy

Not much, just two that point back here, and your post on linuxquestions.org

As it's googled there probably is something around to find ....
After all, where does the world think Nth Korea gets all its' tech info from ...


I'd suggest variations on those two though, such as,

google --> anamism

May be interesting, as the concept of deamons is really a later corruption, on an earlier concept involving the existence/influence of background nature spirits anyway. Christian texts are often full of monsters and blood as well. So a good read there may be productive. I can remember it used to scare the wits out of me when i was young.

Not quite sure how one would go about the practicle side of a study of vampirism, but i guess it would be something a person could get their teeth into, i guess.

(grin), couldn't help the last bi :D

Why deal with theories, just take psychadelics ?

works for me :)

OOOOh that brings back memories- "Vampire Taps"

And Novell Netware 3.1 apparently required dancing widdershins around a bonfire at midnight to configure the server.

EEwww! Not literally, I trust.

Seriously though, how about Marine Biology, it would seem to combine several of your interests. And if you get to be any good, there will be plenty of opportunities for travel, and in many of those tropical former-colonies, French is the main language.

Errr, I take it you dont want to specialise then!! :P :P

Things like photography are best done through a course at night school I think. Also do as much photography as possible (ie take camera EVERYWHERE) and enter as many competitions as possible to build up a portfolio- the digital age makes this so much easier!!

as for the rest, lets see about regrouping things...

- Travelling
- Cultures
- Languages - French
all sort of go together (esp the first 2)

- Animals
- Nature
can go together

- Product Design
- Architecture
could go together (at a push)


have a look and see what the Open University can offer you!!
