Which degree is better? Astronomy or Geology?

I've been interested in the subjects of astronomy and the geological aspects of different planets since I was a young child. But I've been thinking about ways to actualize on my dreams of being a planetary science and I've been wondering if it

Answers:

Whatever you like t work in.

perhaps I am biased, as an astronomer, but I suggest you take either a double major in astronomy and geology as an undergrad or a major and minor. Big overlap in required physics, math, and chem anyway. Planetary geology is a good field

I think you'd have better job opportunities with geology; and, if I might suggest to specialize in hydrology - my nephew graduated a few years back, and is in demand by a LOT of different kinds of companies - looking for ways to get water.
If astronomy is a passion - then, go for it... but, if it's just a hobby - I'd say go with geology, and keep the hobby. Remember the adage, though: Do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life. Best of luck!

Astronomy is broader, but geology is more 'down to Earth', pun not intended. Geology will likely pay better in the long run. Best wishes.

become an astrogeologist. We have found thousands of exoplanets that need geological understanding

Go for geology as there are lots more jobs in this area, then study astronomy part-time. If you are a genius you can get a job in astronomy. There are also some teaching positions in astronomy

You will be saddled with student debt for a while so you better pick a degree that allows you to pay it back quickly and assuredly. Go with Geology, leave Astronomy for your hobbies or if you are rich enough to pay for college without having to work.

It's not a good idea to get an undergraduate degree in Astronomy.

For both fields, you should study physics, math, and computer science as an undergraduate.
(Also, that will ensure you won't become unemployed ten years in the future.)

That's something that only you can answer. However, why not combine the two - astrogeology?
