I go to register for my summer and fall classes today after work! I am super excited to be continuing my collegiate career. I went through the undergraduate bulletin to research possible new majors for the post bac. And not to be all dramatic about it, but I feel like a lot of it is dependent on this first class I’m taking (assuming that it’s not full and that my prerequisite applies).
It’s a human biology class. I’m actually looking forward to delving into the world of genetics and DNA. And I think this is close to the field that I am really thinking I’d like to pursue. At least, right now. But I really think this class is going to be the deciding factor. Do I really want to challenge myself with something far more scientifically based than I originally thought? If I were to continue on this path, my eventual focus would probably be along the lines of epidemiology or medical anthropology.
Now, if I’m not eligible for that class, I can take a philosophy class that fills one of the core requirements. And if I don’t want to challenge myself, but still be fascinated by the subject matter, I’d like to focus on genocide/human trafficking. I have read so much on the subject already. This would definitely be the easier route, but it would still be enjoyable.
And I think either way I go, I’d like to end up teaching at the collegiate level. I want to share the knowledge I have. I enjoy teaching. And I’m good at it.
I just hope I’m able to make a decision and not go through the hours of back and forth I normally do.
