The best thing about your question is that you
like a lot of different things -- that means you
have lots to choose from! What a great position to
be in, even though it can make it harder to
I'm a geologist so I can speak to that area --
there are jobs in academia (if you wanted to get a
Ph.D. and research new ideas), the mining industry
(gold, copper etc. exploration) and oil and gas.
Most often there is associated field work where
you go outside and collect data, so if you don't
enjoy the outdoors then Geology is not the path
for you. Most oil and gas jobs are based in
Geology is about looking at rocks, mapping out
different units and deciding if there is anything
valuable (minerals or oil/gas) in the rocks. It
can be somewhat creative in this way, because you
have to interpret the rocks and map them in
Meteorology leads to careers in weather
prediction (making/interpreting weather charts and
forecasting the weather for the government and for
private networks) or in weather broadcasting on
T.V., which usually requires a degree in
Meteorology plus 2 years of broadcasting school.
Meteorology is often in the same department as
Geology (Earth Science department) so often there
is cross-over between courses and electives in the
first couple of years of university.
And it's always O.K. to take some courses that
you're interested in and try some different
subjects in your electives, that way you can see
what else is out there!
