Is it cool to do a degree in surgery with a degree in BA History and Archaeology and also a master in History and Archaeology?



Is it cool to announce to the world that you have no idea what you want to do with your life?


You can't do a "degree in surgery" on the undergraduate level or even in medical school. In the US, you can do a BA with a double-major in History and Archaeology while taking the pre-med classes. It's not necessary to major in a science in order to go to med school, but you MUST take the pre-med classes. It would be difficult to complete a double major AND the pre-med classes, but it can be done. You could then do a master's in either History or Archaeology -- normally you'd have to choose one or the other, though some programs would allow you to combine the disciplines. Archaeology comprises a lot of history anyway. This would likely take you another 2 years on top of the 4-year bachelor's degree. Then, you'd need to enter medical school, which would take another 4 years. After completing medical school, you'd need to do a hospital residency in surgery, which would take at least another 3 years.
