Short Essay - Areas of Academic Interest

edited January 2008 in College Essays
Hey,

I am struggling to write about my academic essays. The question is:
What are your areas of academic interest?

So I don't know if I should write about:
-The interest that would most interest them for me as a a student (Economics).
-My main passion (Economics)
-My main passions (Economics+Oriental Studies)
-My main interests (learning new languages, economics, Hinduism theology, Oriental studies, Arts...)

It's quite unclear... Being French, I'm not quite used to this type of questions!

I can't wait to get your help. THANKS!

    It says area(s) so write about them all, but briefly. If you can connect them, even better.

    what is the character/word limit?
  • pecoisnepecoisne Posts: 42Registered User Junior Member
    500 characters... It's ridiculous!!!

    yeah, i have one of those too. mine is four hundred characters.

    if i were you, i would do number four "-My main interests (learning new languages, economics, Hinduism theology, Oriental studies, Arts...)"

    it seems the most unique.
