    What do you think about people who do this course? DO you think they are specialising too early?

    Last time I checked, degrees were fairly specialised because you have 4 years to determine your course of your life (GCSE and A level), potentially 5 with gap year but are flexible in your career options/further education.

    Also, what do I think of Environmental Science?

    First thing that comes to mind:

    Hippies! Really!
    I'm nothing like them..haha.

    I see what you are saying. I actually want to do chemistry but can't due to stupid reasons.... Ie my financial sponsor will not fund it.

    I've just heard that it's not considered a real science and they don't really care much for people with the degree cause they can just hire people with chem, bio degree to do the same job. It's disheartening. I chose a course with lots of science and one that might help keep my options open... I'm grasping at straws here

    Yes, unless they study Land Economy at Cambridge, in which case they are fine and deserves respect

    Others, hmm

    If you value birds, rats and insects ahead of workers and society, then it's a good course.

    Someone needs a hug but, since I am unable, I did the next best thing and gave a rep.

    Umm there is a lot more to this than taking care of birds. It's about building a sustainable future. Reducing costs and carbon foot print. There is more than one way to contribute to society.
    I'm not even ask that passionate about the environment but I can see the merit of the degree....
