Updated: Feb 4, 2023

Key Points:

  1. Wikiversity is a good resource to know about some majors or fields of study, and there are really some interesting topics. However, it can only cover so much topics, and can't replace the formal learning in colleges and universities. The only purpose here is to help you have a basic understanding of the topics, so that you could find your interests and pursue formal learning.

To study a major or a field of study, you can follow these steps:

  1. Research the field to understand the different areas of study and job opportunities available.

  2. Get to know your professors and classmates, and seek out mentorship opportunities from experienced professionals in the field.

  3. Attend seminars and conferences to keep up with the latest developments and ideas in your field.

  4. Join relevant organizations and take part in their activities, such as projects, workshops, and internships.

  5. Develop your skills by participating in research projects, volunteering, or working part-time in your field.

  6. Utilize resources such as textbooks, online courses, and industry publications to deepen your knowledge.

  7. Network with professionals in your field through social media, professional organizations, and networking events.

  8. Stay motivated by setting specific, achievable goals and regularly evaluating your progress.
