What Major and Minors to Take to Keep My Career Options Flexible?
As far as future careers go, I'm deciding between two: psychologist, or have my own business (clothing). I'm not sure what particular field of psychology I'd go into if I decided to do that. I'm in my senior year of high school now and am looking into majors and minors at the college I'm thinking about going to. I would definitely major in psychology, but since I want to keep my options open in case I go the other route, I was thinking I'd take General Business as a minor. Is this a good plan? Would it be enough education to go either way? A couple more questions: What are the different fields of psychology, and what sort of education is needed for each one? This would probably be a lot to answer, but I would be so grateful if someone could answer this! There are so many different areas and I'm not sure what kind and how much education is required for all of them. If this will help, here are somewhat more specific areas of psychology that I might consider: clinical psychology, cognitive and perceptual psychology, counseling psychology, developmental psychology, forensic psychology, health psychology, neuropsychology, rehabilitation psychology, school psychology, social psychology. Next question: How many minors would it be reasonable to take? From what I've seen it seems like you can take as many as you want, but I'd like to know how many would be reasonable? Like, the most you could take without being overwhelmed? Because other than General business there are one or two other minors I'd be interested in taking, but I don't want to end up taking on too much. Update: I have one more question: Would a bachelor's degree in science allow me to earn a master's in psychology? Thanks so much in advance! #psychology #entrepreneurship #college #college-major #college-minors #business
College? Minors, Majors, and coursework?
I know I may be a little young (ninth grader here) to be asking such a question, but I am curious as to how college really "works". I would love to attend a specific college and I'm going to make sure my grades are good for it, but I wouldn't know what to do after graduating and going off to college. I think getting the prerequisites out of the way freshman year seems like a good idea, but what comes after that? Majors, minors, and everything else comes into play. Its all so confusing to me. Can someone help explain how and why we need majors and minors? And how long would it possibly take to obtain a masters degree? How can I figure out what I want to do in the future? I know that I would love to somehow look into gender, sexuality, and women's studies, but how can I get to that point? Is there anything I should knock out in high school to help me make my way up to that point? Thank you!! ~Jack :) #college-majors #majors-and-minors #masters-degree #gender-studies #prerequisites #college-minors #sexuality
