25 Things Everyone Who Studied a Bachelor of Arts Degree Will Understand
You learn a lot on the road to completing your Humanities degree. Not all of it is welcome…
1. People automatically assumed you wanted to be a teacher.
2. You have experienced true pain in the form of your book being recalled.
3. Science students will say, “I wish all my work was subjective” as if that’s a good thing.
4. Which it isn’t. Especially when 100% of a module hangs on a single essay.
5. Lit reviews were the actual bane of your life.
6. And Harvard Referencing never got any easier.
Luckily there was Neil’s Toolbox.
7. People assumed fewer contact hours meant an easier degree. It didn’t.
Independent study is a lot easier said than done.
8. You grew tired of people joking that you’d just end up doing a Master’s.
9. But then you genuinely considered doing one.
10. Not knowing exactly what you wanted to do after university was a genuine fear.
11. After telling people what you studied you almost always had to follow it up with a detailed explanation of what it actually entailed.
12.You spent the first two years blissfully ignoring the fact that you would one day have to write a dissertation.
13. And when that time finally came you struggled to cope.
14. People mistook you for a human spell-checker.
“You want me to proofread your entire dissertation?”
15. You had a love-hate relationship with your degree.
One day you felt inspired, the next you were hating it wishing you studied something more practical.
16. Your lecturers took far too much pleasure in confusing you.
17. And nobody ever put their hands up because sometimes there was literally no correct answer.
Which seriously affected your ability to trust.
18. Your library rage was real. Brought out by a number of things, including freshers.
19. Not being able to find a seat.
20. And loud eaters.
21. You were often the one convincing people to go out as you had fewer commitments during the week.
22. You treated your personal tutor like your bank account.
Ignore for months and then reluctantly reconnect.
23. Google Books has saved your life a number of times.
24. But the Turnitin plagiarism detector had you in a nervous sweat every time.
25. And nothing turned you off someone more than them disagreeing with you in a seminar.
