    I have 5 degrees in mind to study at university - Neuroscience, Psychology, History, Politics and Philosophy. I want to go into research for any one of these degrees but I am more sure about what I want to specialise in with the sciences than the humanities.I understand it's about 'which one are you more interested in' but to be honest, I like learning so there's very little that gets me bored. I took a long time whittling down the number of subjects I want to study to what I have here. I just haven't been in a position to know if I love a subject enough to stick with doing it for a really long time so I am going to try and attend summer schools and masterclasses and that type of thing.

    It would be really helpful if someone could tell me what a career in scientific and humanities research is like. Humanities research isn't exactly the conventional lab experiment type so I don't really know if I'd be suited to it or how it even works out. Scientific research developments interest me the most, but I think that's to do with the fact that I see that in the news a lot more and the fact that,in my opinion, it always leaves interesting questions that are left for others to answer with their own original scientific research.

    TL;DR - Science or Humanities research? Research prospects and Pros and Cons for each.

    Thanks

    No one is going to read that.

    Pick the subject that strikes the right balance between what you're interested in and what aligns with your career aspirations.

    Paragraphs would help people read it easier.
