Siren Watcher Education:

Over the course of my academic life I have studied different disciplines circulating around; culture, society, communication and linguistics. With specific emphasis on Journalism, Sociology and Anthropology.

During high school my latter years focused on Computing, Business Studies, Ancient History and English. I had 3 separate English classes for my end of compulsory schooling education certificate, with the two advanced units being optional add-ons. I focused very little on my end of high school certificate, due to knowing I had already been accepted into a Diploma of Journalism program which does not use your High School graduating grades for enrolment, it just costs more money and can be used as a direct pathway into university.

This program works by half of your degree being completed a private college for a higher fee (1 year), then the other end of your degree at a paired university (2 years), giving you a 3 year university degree (standard time for a degree in Australia). This costs more money, but makes your high school graduating grades mean nothing, which I found worth the investment. In Australia degrees are paid for by the government, and you then pay it back to them with 0 interest once you get your wages garnished at a certain threshold of earnings (as of now its 44k a year, which is average wages).

I consider myself an entrepreneur, and I am consumed by the concept of creating things for the benefit of society. I find my studies in sociology and anthropology are very likely a reflection of this desire. As it involves the study of analysis of humans. I also like psychology though I have some confliction with the medication side of the psychiatry in terms of inflated rates of misdiagnosis, so I leaned towards Sociology. Though I prefer Psychology at core and find it more valuable.

My first degree I tried was a Bachelor of Behavioural Studies (Psychology) though I didn’t stick with it. Both Psychology and Sociology are intermingled in terms of how they work. The simple phrasing I use to explain them is; Psychology is the study of you with yourself, Sociology is the study of you with other people, and Anthropology is you with the environment. As a rough simple description.

My studies into communication, writing and journalism disciplines stem from my deep desire to write published works. Whether in academic literature, novellas, novels, articles, and whatever form they may take. During my high school years I spent an extensive portion of my time writing novellas and then when finishing schooling, that major discipline won out as my first interaction with higher education. Though I had no great desire at the time to create anything but novels. Later I have found myself involved in the desire to create academic literature, and research studies.

A loose concept to be to explain that I would like to work towards is a profession within Sexology. My eventual job description hypothetically being a Sexologist, whom is involved in research studies surrounding the topic of ‘sex’ in culture and society. Using the route of study in Sociology and Anthropology towards that goal. Especially as Sexology is a niche field I think its important to ingrain myself in other disciplines also. Though this is an extremely niche field and I am still unsure whether I shall properly pursue it.

I enrolled into my second bachelor due to needing to fulfil the pre-requisites for a Masters in Sexology (or Grad Dip), though over time I have realised I may feel more fulfilled from following an entrepreneurial path. Though this is something I keep in the back of my mind as something I may return back to later, likely after I have children and want a more focused profession.
