Calling all Students!

I am wondering how many students are out there and if so what are you studying?

Me I am working on my Masters of Arts in Integrated Studies with a focus on community organization at Athabasca University. Right now I am working on a paper for a course called Researching Society and Culture.

I'm working on a PhD in English at Northwestern University. My dissertation is about the development of the individual political subject in 20th century American poetry and novels. I hope to get a job teaching American lit and culture when I finish the degree.

I'm an A Level student doing Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Business Studies.

If my exams go the way I plan, then I'll soon be a proper student at Edinburgh Uni studying Maths and Physics

I'm working on a PhD in history at Texas. My dissertation is on the relationship of nationalism, imperialism, and science in 19c. Central America.

EDIT: I will make my fortune with my first popular history book "Pirates vs. the Inquisition," unsurprisingly, it will be about pirates who went before the Inquisition. Look for it in bookstores near you (in 15 or 20 years).

I teach in a public high school. I am unaware of any studying or learning going on in my general vicinity.

Oh, 3, go Hoosiers!

I'm persuing a phsics PhD at Auburn University in Alabama. Science is hard and is becomming less interesting as I go allong. Anyone seeking to hire a gradschool dropout with crazy physics and math skills? I'll move anywhere except Jersey.

I'm a senior in highschool. My college will be either TCU, Tennessee, or (if I get in) Virginia Tech or James Madison. I'm planning either bio, microbio, or nutrition/dietetics, and will maybe go on to an accredited naturopathic school.

Cool, another Athabascan I am working on my BA in Psychology (Athabasca U at Mount Royal College in Calgary). Right now I am supposed to be studying for midterm in Biological Psychology...

Edit: this is a second BA (first one was in Classics) because it took me a while to figure out what to do when I grow up. I'm planning on doing the Athabasca/U of C Master's program in Counselling.

Earth science student, specialising in geology, and more specifically quaternary geology, which around here pretty much deals with clay, till, sand, peat bogs and stuff like that. But I plan to add two years of "hard rock" geology as well, after the quaternary.

If I stay at UNH, I'll probably major in economics or something like that. Probably minor in physics.

If I don't go to UNH, I'll have a hybrid of economics,physics, and maybe law.

I'm at The Local High School focusing on Getting Out.

...and my focus once I get out will hopefully be either Environmental Sciences, Crop Sciences or Turf Management at University of Guelph or a business degree from elsewhere...

Central OH-Columbus State finishing off some graduation requirements, then back to OSU for the bachelors. Looking at creating my own major in political history. I'm a super senior...or will be.
