    First, count the list of things you want degrees in:

    Math
    Engineering
    science
    technology
    medicine
    arts
    theology
    religion
    law
    anthropology
    economics
    psychology
    literature
    french

    Then, multiply that number (14) by 4, to determine how long you will be in school. (56 years) Then, determine average tuition books cost per year. Its about $15,918 + $800 in modern dollars, but its been trending up, so you will paying a lot more in 2063 when you are finishing your final degrees, and are in your late 70s. You can then calculate your total costs for school of of about ten million dollars.

    When you are done with all that, decide if you want to spend ten million dollars to be done with school at the age of 80, and when you realize you don't, pick one degree and role with it.

    PEace!

    edit: If you just happen to REALLY love academia, pick on degree, then get a doctorate, and a job as a professor. Then you can be on campus your whole life, picking up info from your colleagues abotu diverse fields the whole time. But you have to be a specialist in something.

    What you should do is decide what you're actually going to do, as opposed to making pie in the sky plans that all but infeasible.
    Who would employ you if your declaration is that you want to work in many different fields?
    Why would someone take you on and train you knowing that you intend to bugger off shortly?
    How do expect to gain any valuable experience and background hopping from one field to another?
    This will become a distinct problem as you get older: who wants a 40 year old as a starter in a new field? Especially one who's spent his "career" gaining so little in-depth knowledge of any particular discipline?
    Nobody's impressed by a dilettante.

    Then again, you could always become a multi-millionaire first 1, and that would mean there'd be no problem looking for actual employment.

    One of my few "selling points" in the job market is that I have done a wide variety of different things, with a reasonably good level of experience. The downside is, that I am not an expert in anything. So what tends to happens is, I go for a job interview as "X" and they say, "oh, so you could also help out with ... and ..."

    I reckon there is a hidden 'Gribbin' in you. Time to cash in with all that science stuff in your brain. :-))

    EDIT: ....and he has quite a sense of humour it seems (quite a modest bloke)

    Having done a wide variety of things is one thing.
    Holding it as an ambition to deliberately spread yourself around as much as possible - especially in such disparate fields - engineering and theology 1? medicine and literature? - isn't.

    One of the lessons of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is that this approach doesn't work.

    You want to do medicine? For interest? That's six years minimum out of your life. And they're not book years, they're hard, hard, sometimes gut-wrenching years.

    Come to think of it, you'll have no life to speak of. Engineering. Which? Mechanical, civil, chemical - make a choice.

    As for computing and maths and statistics, you'll have to do a lot of these for any worthwhile science degree. (Maybe not medicine - unless you go into research, there's another dozen or so years taken care of.)

    As for accounting and actuarial stuff. Buy a package or two.

    It really sounds to me as though you want to do a science journalism kind of thing. Unfortunately, the market for science journalism is now infinitesimally small. Hardly any major newspaper has a dedicated science and/or technology journalist at all nowadays. Most science "journalists" are freelance or bloggers or the like.

    I do not see how anyone could work to earn the necessary money for all this.

    This is the dilettante dream of someone with a substantial trust fund.

    In addition to being utterly Unrealistic, by the time you reach you 70s, part or a lot of methods/knowledge will be obsolete/no longer widely used and you will have missed new developments (like if you had learned how to program a mainframe with punchhole cards X decades ago by the time you finish all your degrees that knowledge would be useless in practice).

    I don't want to be rude but, are you trolling?

    Buy 1 encyclopedia, 1 algebra calculus book and 1 french dictionary and read it. There's no way you can study and work on all these fields, not even in 1/6 of them.
    Check coursera for free courses as well. It may satisfy your interests.

    Just get excellent grades do some volunteer work and go for a science--money is so flush most of the major universities can't give money away because they have trouble finding qualified applicants.

    I made money in Grad school sufficient to pay off my undergrad bills.... the same program (Penn State) has even more money today with an even higher percentage of foreigners because of few qualified American applicants.
