What subjects should I study at University?

What I needed most in university was math and English. The physics you will learn from scratch again. You will discover that classical mechanics, which you learn at high school, is a much richer and elegant system than how it is taught in school. To experience this elegance you need to learn more math. What was maybe a bunch of tricks and rules becomes a simpler…
