Not that you’d want to be graduating or soon to graduate right now, times are terrible for newly minted and recent graduates, but still, if you were in college, what would you study?
I suppose you’d have to apply your current experiences (wisdom?) to the decision, so this is a Back to School exercise.
Would you pursue the same degree? That’s a bit like wishing for more wishes, but I’ll allow it. Would you get more or less schooling, i.e. do or not do post-graduate study?
I’ll go first. I graduated with a degree in economics, which nicely combined subjects I like (psychology, money, history, math) into a easy to digest package. I also dabbled in computer science toward the end of my collegiate tour. The two combined nicely into my current profession, product development.
If I could go back to school today, I’d focus on design and computer science, fitting nicely into a new area of interest for me, data visualization.
