    I'm like you Moxy, absolutely no idea what I want to be when I grow up So I am starting a BA next semester. I did a single subject in Information studies last sem - and realised that librarianship, or any of those type jobs wasn't for me. I decided that I may as well just do something I am really interested in, even if it won't get me an actual career, it is still a pathway anyway - and I've made it this far without any formal education - so things can only get better.

    I am still so unsure about what I want to do that I don't even know what I want to major in, so I just put down sociology because that type of thing interests me - I may change it though. I will just see how I go.

    Haha, answered your question before I saw this post- looks like we are doing the same thing for the same reason! I was tossing up between, Soc, Politics & History!

    I've decided to do something radical and outrageous and study something I'm interested in, not for the purpose of getting a qualification or to get me a job, but just for fun. So I've enrolled in one unit through OUA and if it goes well (ie I can handle being "back at uni") then I'll look at getting another arts degree, but this time in something I'm interested in (major in sociology and incorporating subjects in religion and history). I'm excited!

    I'm currently in my first year of a Social Science degree, majoring in psychology and sociology, with a minor in criminology. My electives I'm using to focus on Indigenous Australian history and culture.

    Once I have completed my second year, I'll apply for the 2 year end on Social Work degree.

    Alternatively, I'll do all three years of my SocSc degree and graduate, then apply to do a Master of Social Work. Haven't decided which way to go yet.

    My aim is to work with DHHS as a child protection case worker.

    I take my hat off to you. I would love to have the mental fortitude to do this but I'd be a mess. Good luck with your studies.

    I'm now considering a major in literature. Getting a degree for reading books is rather appealing!

    That sounds good, I love reading. The reading load would be insane though and I am lucky if I manage 5 mins a night before crashing out fast asleep! Very dodgy of me, but I need this course to be as easy as possible!
