In the spirit of giving a simple answer, I think Psychology plus Business would likely open many doors for you in all of the fields you mentioned. Hotels will want to see business experience and will also want to know that you understand people. If you are interested in education, a psychology major also sets you up nicely to work with the special needs population during or after college. Though this combination won't prepare you for a teaching career, it can lead you into higher education like working at a university as an academic advisor or similar.


Also, chances are, you will change your mind a couple times before you are done with college. Psychology plus Business (whether a double-major or major in one and minor in the other) will set you up nicely for a variety of careers. As a psychology major myself, I wish I had added a business minor!

Hello Ruina,


In each of the three fields that intrigues you has something in common and that is 'your need' to help others and improve their lives. Please ask yourself, 'Do helping others make me feel happy and do I do this without expecting anything in (immediate) return'? Hospitality (Hotel Management) is 5 % science and 95 % people. Your ability to deal with fellow human being will decide success.


A career must be chosen by analyzing your personality traits compounded with your academic abilities and liking. One must also carefully consider local circumstances and opportunities in distant future. US dept. of Labor publishes Labor Outlook Handbook (Please visit website at http://www.bls.gov/ooh/) This will help you see the professions that will offer consistency and/or future growth. Whatever you select for yourself, ensure that makes you happy from inside and releases tremendous energy inside of you that you just can't get enough of that stuff.


I complement you for thinking of career at an early stages of education. Best wishes,

Hi Ruina,


Before you decide and opt for a particular degree course, you need to set some goals, for example: What kind of activities you want to develop in your profession? What kind of audience?


The three course options that you places have specific tasks that are different from each other. For this reason, it is essential that you write and select the activities that you hope to develop in your career, and this way you will be able to decide which course to choose.


I hope this suggestion can help you.

Hi Ruina,
I'm a sophomore studying for a hotel management degree in Chicago (http://chicago.lesroches.edu/), and I guess if you're interested in both psychology and hotel management, that would be an ideal choice for you as well. You see, hospitality students study not only stuff like services techniques, hotel operations and management theories. At my school curriculum includes introduction to psychology. And besides, HR management which of course we will also study is about communicating with people efficiently and understanding them. You can't be a good HR manager, whether at a hotel or not, without being a people person. A successful hospitality manager is always a good psychologist, they can't but be as every day they have to find an approach to individuals, both employees and guests coming from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. So I believe for someone with inclinations like yours majoring in hospitality would be the best decision.

One of the things that I wish I would have done for my undergraduate degree was to pursue a minor if not a double major in another field. Personally, I believe that one should be am entrepreneur and promote whatever passion they possess and and produce from their collegiate, vocational, or trade school matriculation. One should find a way to package their passion and make money from it if possible. Therefore, I think it's feasible to get a business degree or have a minor in it to receive the basics of running and managing a business. As someone mentioned in their posts before, psychology would be highly useful of you were to decide to work in the education profession. Options give you opportunities!
