I'm at university in the UK and currently a 1st year biochemist. However, I have come to realise that I don't enjoy the chemistry side that much and would like to focus more on the biological side of the human body. After this year I will have the choice to change my degree pathway and opt into doing other life science courses.
The problem is that I am really unsure whether to stick with biochemistry, or transfer to do molecular biology and genetics. My passion is studying about cells, DNA, proteins, bacteria, microbes and especially viruses.
My university does not offer a microbiology degree so I can't choose that route (but I heard the pay is not great as a career). Instead, the biotechnology and molecular biology and genetics focus on the microbe part. My other is issue is that I am afraid of limiting myself later on in life when I choose a career. I heard that biochemists get paid more.
I would really like experts to help me out here.
