I'm about to start a degree in Biochemistry at the university, BUT i've been thinking about studying natural sciences instead, majoring in biochemistry and minor would be in either chemistry or pharmacology. Really not sure with what i should go for, is natsci as respected as a single science degree?? I want to keep things broad and study a range of different things, my only worry is that studying natsci will cut some of the traditional biochemistry modules out to make room for chemistry/pharma ones. Does anyone have any advice? Is it best to keep options open and do natsci or just go for biochem on it's own?
Biochemistry or Natural Sciences degree? Watch

Keeping your options open if you're unsure of where your specific interests lie is a very good idea. If you want to stay in science you have a long way to go before you need to decide what you're actually interested in and have plenty of time an opportunities to specialise. At this stage it make little to no difference whether you do a biochem or natsci degree.
