Sungwoo (Chunga)’s Answer

+ 1 from Milad's comments above. Also, you can always do a double major once you get into the college. At the end of the day, your major in college doesn't really play a key role in your future job post-college, unless you are looking for jobs that requires specific skills like doctor or soft engineer. I personally studied Journalism in college and got my first job in Marketing for consumer goods company. I'd suggest you think of what you want to do or what you are passionate about first. Once you have a draft plan, it will naturally lead to the right major.

You got most of the answers. I can point you to another direction. Most of the Hospitals and Blood banks need councilor for their patient. You can apply there as well. There are opportunities in the Govt and Private sector.

Hello Yareli,

You have gotten many excellent answers from other respondents. A thought I would like to contribute is that in order to give yourself a wider range of job and salary options, continue your education and get a Master's degree or higher. It will be difficult for you to find good paying, rewarding work in the mental health field with only a Bachelor's degree.

I hope you enjoy your educational pursuits and wish you all the best.

Mark V.

Milad’s Answer

There are many roles in marketing that requires a psychology background. The field is called behavioral science or behavioral economics. There are a lot of market research companies that also need this background to design proper research methods.

I work in a prison-we hire many psychologists! If you want a different environment to utilize your degree-Correctional Psychology could be a VERY interesting path for you!
