Hi Isabela,

You are asking a great question and I am pretty sure that there maybe other individuals wanting to know about it like you. Having a double major in psychology and a minor in music is an interesting combination. I believe both psychology and music meshes well together because it gives you the opportunity to utilize and explore how people feel, think and respond when you are providing a service in your upcoming career. Both combinations make sense and works well together. You are more marketable to obtain more job opportunities. With a major in psychology and a minor in music; you can explore the career path of being a music therapist; a teacher; recreational therapist; musical trainer, etc.

If you are strongly considering the field of psychology, you would need to further your education beyond a bachelor's degree in order to establish a career in both areas. It is up to you to have the passion and the desire to continue to pursue a degree in psychology and a minor in music. If this is your ultimate desire and interest, then go for it. Good luck to you and I wish you well in your academic studies and your career.

I hope this response helps you get a better sense of how you can utilze majoring in psychology and minor in music.

  • Think about whether or not you want to continue to major in psychology and music

Hi!

One of the fields you could go into is a therapist with a focus in music. This will involve getting a Master's degree and possibly a doctorate, but it will be well worth it. This will allow you to work with people and put your use of music knowledge to the public. It is important to make sure you go to an APA accredited university for your masters, so you can gain licensure, but otherwise, your options are wide open.
