    I mean, when all's said and done, in terms of career prospects and/or postgraduate education.

    I'm thinking specifically about Life Sciences, but I'm sure it's similar for most subjects/disciplines.

    For example, I'm considering/have considered Biological Science(s), Sport Science(s), Human Biology and Physiology. When comparing different degrees such as these, how do you know, specifically what you can and can't do with each?

    In particular, Sport Science and Physiology: I get the impression that Sport Science isn't as respected as perhaps other science degrees. "If a degree has the word 'Science' in the title, then it isn't one", etc.

    Also, that Physiology is a more "legitimate" degree, more academic, perhaps even more scientific?

    Is that just the view of the layman, or also in academia/employment? Either way, how can I find out specifically what can be done with one that can't be done with the other?

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    Or is it a completely impossible question to answer?
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
