Im a juinor in high school and trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. I know Im young and have a lot of time to think about it, but I might as well start now. So Id say that weight training and nutrition are two of the things Im most passionate about in life. For this reason a major in exercise physiology/nutrion really interests me. I also really like evolution and human development over time, different cultures etc. so Im think perhaps a major in anthropology would be something to think about. Similarly, I think the human brain function is really interesting, so a major in psychology may be something to think about. I think the works of people such as Sigmund Freud(sp?) are fascinating, however I dont think I like the idea of becoming an actual psychologist. Finally, I have a great interest in theoretical physics and string theory etc. So I was thinking about a physics major. However, after taking AP physics this year I am reconsidering this. The class is nothing like I thought it would be and is very difficult. So I would be very hesitant to major in phyics now.
Anyway, here are some questions for anyone here who took exercise physiology, nutrition, anthropology, psychology, or physics:
- What was the workload like in the college courses?( ie. Was there a shit ton of homework and stuff?)
- What career options would arise from the respective fields of study?
- What kind of money could you be looking at with a profession in the field?
Thanks all. Any comments/ advice are welcome.
