I know your optimism lol
Last year I wanted to major in CS, IT and IS (basically IT but has business classes too), as well as minor in cyber security and project management.
I also wanted to purse a master's or another BS in cyber security/forensics after that.
Today? IT with a minor in CS and cyber security lol. I got slapped with the reality check of being a student for like 6 to maybe even 8 years and said fuck nah.
Part of me is still considering pursing a cyber security degree as well, but it's so hard to find a uni that's credible and offers it as a stand-alone degree. Doubtful that I'll find one close enough
Don't let my pessimistic attitude piss in your corn flakes though. Keep it up and learn everything you can, because nobody can take away your education.
Elyz76012yAh to be optimistic about the future again. I wanted a BSc and an MSc and to be the coolest hacker that ever walked this planet once. Now I'll settle for getting through my BSc and if I then decide to do an Msc that will require some serious thought. It's not all sunshine and rainbows and to be honest most of the time uni sucks. Helps to think of how life will be on the other side though.
Elyz76012y@Stuxnet we don't have anything like that here. You only have classes relevant for your "major" I guess, even though we don't have majors or minors.. Even our elective courses have to be relevant to our study programme or they won't get approved. Here you don't just apply to a university, you apply to a specific study programme within it as well. Makes for a pretty good time and you don't have classes you don't care about.
@Elyz You have to apply to the degree programs here, but I mean most people get accepted, unless it's a very competitive program or a graduate level program.
IT being one of the newest majors at my uni, it only has like 140 people enrolled in it. So I was accepted in about 20 minutes of applying to it lol.
I have a friend who was trying to get a doctorate in pharmacy, and there were 2,000 students applying for 210 spots.
I wish we didn't have to take general education classes that were irrelevant. They waste my time and are boring asf.
Biggy137202yDon’t forget to pick Medicine too. Your parents and grandparents have to be proud of you.
