You need to ask yourself what you want to do as a job. Botany qualifies you for scientific fieldwork and labwork. However jobs are badly paid and few and far between for these jobs unless you specialise further (masters, phd), I know a guy with a master in botany who works as a labtech for £13,000 a year washing up pots. I have met many people in the horticulture trade, usually older people, who have degrees in botany, but their practical skills that qualify them for their current jobs were...
…learnt from outside their degrees. Basically If you want to work directly with living plants I would suggest horticulture, theres a wide range of opportunities beyond just being someones gardener, hydroponics, propagation, specialist glasshouse work, degree level horticulture is well recieved and there are a plethora of excellent jobs available and not enough people educated to the right level to fill them. it’s probable also the same in places like Denmark. I don’t know if you are aware also, but there is a big outcry at the moment for young, intelligent and highly trained people in horticulture, I do not think you would ever be out of a job even with a most basic degree. I don’t have much practical experience because of where I’ve lived recently, but I still have never had a problem getting jobs/funding/work experience. If you want any more info just ask me
This is very helpful! Thank you! I’ll be thinking about it as I save up money and finish this first degree, so I have a few months to wrap my head around it.
