What are some job prospects for a Neuroscience major?
I'm entering college in the fall and planning to major in Neuroscience on a pre-med track. Just in case I don't pursue going to medical school, I was wondering if there are any job prospects for this major, like a back-up plan? In all honesty, I'm fearful that I might pursue the wrong major and end up with no job prospects after college UNLESS I go to medical school (which I'm not yet entirely sure if I really want to commit to another 10+ years of schooling). Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
Another field would be Corporate Strategy, where you might be instrumental in determining what products/treatments/advancements a company wants to develop and sell.
And one more idea, Clinical Study Coordinator or Clinical Study Manager is something that you can be a part of registering patients through various phases of clinical trials of novel drugs or devices.
Some testimonials and information about research at an undergraduate level:
Clinical Research Coordinators are tasked with administering clinical trials. Their primary responsibilities include managing clinical trials and collecting data, informing participants about study objectives and administering questionnaires
