How Should I narrow down what major I would like to go into when I am not sure what to choose.
I am very interested in psychology and communications. I am good with people and do well in sciences classes so I considered being a nurse. I have always been interested in being a detective or analyst, I am just not sure what jobs I would be able to get if I went into Criminal Justice and psychology. I also want to make a good amount of money, and be able to have kids and still have a job where I prioritized my family and work. #psychology #nursing #criminal-justice #career #sociology
I would recommend taking a career interest survey (myplan.com is highly rated) to determine what career applies most to your interest. From there, I would seek to acquire an internship in that field (so if being a nurse was the highest on your survey, then get an internship at a hospital to shadow a nurse). As for the money piece, I would advise being very careful weighing too much on that portion. It's definitely okay to want to make good money, but you also don't want to be miserable at what you do for the rest of your career.
When you are choosing to start a career, the selection process is 1) jobs where you can make decent money, 2) jobs that you are good at doing, 3) jobs that you enjoy doing. As you build your experience and career, you can then reverse these decision factors.
Another thing to consider is the possibility of a double major. I'll use myself as an example. When I went to college I had an interest in criminal justice because I was considering going to law school. However, once I got to college, I realized I also had an interest in communications and was able to add this additional major to my plan of study. Some programs will have overlap in courses which makes it plausible to do a double major like in my case, but just keep in mind that this can vary my school.
I hope this is helpful to you!
