Firstly, define "mickey mouse".
psych get alot of bad rep but to be honest theres no need for it, its quite a strong scientific subject in its roots just due to the fact that its a very popular subject these days it makes it seem like a subject people cant take seriously
Why is a subject bad just because most schools don't offer them?
If the school is so backwards it can't offer anything new then that's what's to blame, not the subject.
Law is hard, dammit. >.<
I disagree with the fact that subjects are being discredited when the same amount of work goes into them as others. When I emailed Uclan they said that they credited all A Level subjects.
yes, but its a well known fact, you have your sciences, then your english, then the humanities. Its an order, thats been a stance like that for years. We cant change it.
But remember just because LSE says it's mickey mouse doesn't mean every other university feels the same way.
I think the LSE list is pretty accurate, but I was very surpised that film studies isn't on it since I didn't think it was any more respected than media studies. I was also very pleased to notice that sociology isn't on it, which means that according to LSE I don't do any 'mickey mouse' subjects. Not that I'm applying there anyway!
I'm taking Religious Studies, English and Information Technology AS courses in September and as has already been said, it depends on the strengths and weaknesses of the individual concerned. I can't help feeling that this has been discussed to death and possibly a thread too many.
Why are there so many threads on this?!
