I'm about to start university on a physical geography degree. We have to chose two additional modules as well as compulsory modules, and the geography department offers one physical module, one human module and one module thats a bit of both. The physical module looks horrendous - basically a mixture of chemistry and physics, which I'm awful at and don't enjoy.
Perhaps I was being slightly naive in opting for physical over human geography; I stupidly thought it wouldn't be toooo science based, plus at A level I enjoyed physical more. Now after speaking to one of my physical professors, who seemed quite confused that I hadn't chosen human geography and that I have no science background at all at A level, I'm starting to regret my decision.
Any physical geographers out there who can explain what level of science physical geography entails? If I hate chemistry and physics, will I hate my degree? I am definitely more of a humanities student, and I'm interested in the environment, biodiversity, conservation, and natural disasters etc. Do I need to rethink this, and I am suited to physical geography?
