My feet are frozen, I may need to get them amputated? Today is a study day! What am I studying? Archaeology! I have listened to a lecture for 101 minutes about early humans on my bed, folding washing, unpacking the dishwasher, laying upside down on the lounge. I'm like a small child! Then I looked over my assignment requirements (1000-1500 words describing the major physical and cultural features of Neanderthals. Where this evidence was found and the significance of the geographical location!) Now I'm supposed to read chapter 4 of my textbook -The Human Lineage and then read 4 articles relating to said chapter! I'm actually finding it very interesting because I love learning new things!
Why am I studying archaeology if I want to become an Astronomer you ask! I will explain.......
For my science degree I'm majoring in Physical Sciences so I can become an Astronomer. That much you know 😊 if you didn't then just preview all the latest blog posts and smattering of space related photos on here and G+.
Anyway there are 4 core subjects with my degree and then for my major its 8 units. So I had to pick 12 electives to complete the 24 units to get my bachelors degree. There is a huge selection to choose from and they covered a wide range of topics. The idea of a bachelors degree is to obviously study the things pertaining to the career you wish to undertake, but also to gain a broader range of education in a few fields. I tried to stick to things that would compliment what I was learning in my major.
Communicating in the Sciences
Statistics - Data Analysis
Enabling studies (mathematics fundamentals)
Physical Science Major
Physics Concepts 1
Physics Concepts 2
Astronomy and Astrophysics
Here is what I picked for my electives.
Intro to Anthropology
Weather and climate
Intro to communication studies
Adaption to climate change
Sustainable resource use
Anyway I'm pretty sure it's lunchtime, so I might have a break! 🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓
