Is psychology a good major?
Is psychology a good major? I am really passionate when it comes to studying human behavior but as a child of immigrant I have to make sure that I won’t struggle financially. I hear a lot of people talking about how this major is not good and finding jobs is hard and they don't pay a good amount. I don’t want to sacrifice my passion for money but I have to be realistic and consider financial aspects too. Thank you.
If you're someone that doesn't want to commit and try it out. I say take the time to do an internship or even do your own research about the topic. As you know yourself the best. One piece of advice I would give you would be give yourself time there's no need to rush what you want to do later in life. Psychology would always be there as a major. There might be a lot of work and time you might need to put in order to get a decent job. But if you're fully committed to Psychology. Then I totally think it's worth it.
Good luck 🍀
