In college, my favorite subjects were chemistry and philosophy, with applied physics.

In high school, I loved math.

Physics and math all the way, especially in uni.

Math, science, and history, because I was a natural at them.

I liked wood shop and welding, html was fun too even though I literally remember nothing from it anymore (it’s probably all outdated many times over by now anyway lol)

Nothing. The reason is I have no direction after high school. I did not want to waste life away( I did for 6 months after high schools graduation. Even towards 3rd to 4th year of University I still had no idea. I closed my eyes and jumped to Engineering because graduation was coming up.

I hated school in general eventhough I went all the way and finished college.

Still to this day I dislike my job. Mechanical Structure/Interface Design Engineer. Decent pay is what keeps me there.

School was fun. I learned a lot of useless shite, butt also stuff that lets me explore beyond my previous horizons.
Learning can’t be undone, not like ignoring.

My favorite subjects at school are literature and language. I really loved the human sciences. At the moment I work in an educational company and am engaged in writing capstone projects, namely, a subcategory of topics for them. You can read my article about the best capstone project topic ideas by clicking here, I think if you are a student or work in the field of writing, then you will like this article.

 I have more than a few favs.

First year engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology: calculus, physics, chemistry and thermodynamics. Because they taught me how to think in the real, physical world.  Because hard sciences and math are fun to think and talk about.

My favorite areas are Arts, Sciences and Humanities. I have self-studied (read tons of books) for decades. Biology, medicine, philosophy, etc, etc.

I audited a post-graduate course Recent Advances In Neuroscience at Wayne State University.

Currently, my area of study is the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures.

 

Because I like big lights, my flashlightical views lean heavily toward both the extreme bright and the extreme heft.

After 4 years of Tec school; full time days and some varied and sundry nite classes; I realized that I never really learned anything in high school that mattered; Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

HVAC-2 years
Welding-2 years
Horticulture-Nites
Solar Energy-Nites
Cabinet Making-Nites.

I liked em all.

It's only true if you believe it.

I lived in the US for a few years and did some classes, the guy next to me told me he was auditing the class, which I assumed meant he had been asked to provide feedback on the course to the University. We ended up working together in a group on the final project. After we submitted the lecturer contacted us to ask who he was because he wasn’t registered for the class.

At school I liked Physics…..my daughter studies Economics and some of that is very interesting.

Wood shop, metal shop, and welding. It was fun and I still enjoy it as a hobby. If I had it to do over I would’ve pursued the metal working as a career.

I rather enjoyed physics! Getting explanations for why things in the world worked a certain way had a certain appeal to me.

I love history. I even face the starry more than once and imagined that if I could go back a thousand years ago, I would launch an industrial revolution and then rule all around world. But soon I realized that couldn’t even control the cells of the whole body.

I remember how I was enjoying maths classes. Everyone in my class hated it but not me. Now my son is going to the child early education Brooklyn center in Brooklyn https://littlescholarsnyc.com/. They have a qualitative education program there. He told me that he loves mathematic classes there and I was surprisingly shocked. Now I am worried about his future school. I suppose he will be bored with that because he already knows a lot. Maybe he should try to enter any special maths school if we have any.

My feelings are that it is not only the subject, but (also) who teaches it.

My first year in highschool we got a new dean, who was a PhD in math. And he was so kind as to give us a tast of his genius. Students were struggling to survive yet another hour. Grades were low.
Next year we got a lady who not (yet) had her masters. And looked if she was on a break from grooming her pony. When we stumbled on a certain subject she told us “you must have had that in your first year, why dont you remember?”. Well eh, the dean… So she gave us a crash course and in doing so, wiped away in a few weeks the primal fear for math our dean had gifted us a year long.
I still hate math. But sometimes you just need it.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

A good topic to remember and instill. I personally have always loved physical education and literature, but true love happened in the history of the world class. I still travel all over the world and explore what has won my heart since childhood.

Interesting answers above. Never thought about this before and find my answers very strange though i doubt they will be to anyone else.

School : Pure maths, music, spanish, and electronics. Hated PE but loved to training for and playing competitive sport outside of school as a junior, probably because i loved the sport itself.
6th form: Electronics, but not maths, physics or chemistry.
Uni: I don’t remember liking any of my EE degree (which i didn’t get to finish for different reasons :D)

I’m naturally disposed to learning and have always self-studied in some form or other so am surprised how i liked so little during formal education.

I went to a 2 year college in Newark NJ back in the late 60’s. I just opened as was in an old 8 story office building . A mix of students, drug dealer and gang bangers.

The joke was you were there to learn the 3 R’s – Rip Rape and Run .
