Degree subjects: your career options
You may have realised that your degree isn’t particularly vocational or that, if it is, you aren’t interested in the career it leads to. You shouldn’t necessarily change courses though; there are still other options available to you. Plenty of people have taken your degree and gone on to do different things with it.
