How do I go about pursuing pediatrics occupational therapy as someone who is a political science major? Is it unheard of, given that I am not a stem major?

I am currently a political science major which I love very much, but I have always wanted to engage in some form of care. I know to work on prerequisites and shadowing hours for OT school, but i am worried my background may not be good for the career choice.

What degree might help me achieve financial stability sooner?

I am debating between industrial/organizational psychology, business-admin, and Political Science? also which degree might help more once I obtain a bachelors because I do know that for psychology and and political science I might have to further my education after my bachelors but I am just stuck if they are worth pursuing? I want to be able to be financially stable with a healthy personal/work lifestyle first and then continue studying. I have finished all of the pre-req's for these 3 choices with the consideration to the university i would like to transfer but then before applying I looked into nursing for some time and did a couple classes but saw that either way I would be starting form zero and doing more pre-req's that I went back to look into which career to narrow down on and finish before starting something else. I'm hesitant about what to do? any ideas might be nice :)

What are the best fields of law to go into for someone who enjoys politics, but also enjoys studying criminal cases?

However, the idea of defending a criminal does not sit right with me, and having a criminal get out of jail come after me for prosecuting them is also nerve wracking.

How do I pick what to do in college and with the rest of my life?

I am starting my senior year of high school in the fall and I've been thinking about what I want to do in the future. I really love film and I've been interested in becoming a director or cinematographer, however, I've been told that they aren't practical enough. The alternative is international law and political science because I guess those are things I could settle for. How do I pick what to do?

If I have two very different career paths in mind, how should I find a way to choose between them? Should I try to balance them even though it's unrealistic?

I have two very different career paths in mind. I'd like to be an intelligence officer or a THINKTANK, but I also want to pursue a job in the film industry. I have knacks for both political science and acting/direction. I'm not sure what to do, because choosing one would most likely mean not getting to do the other. What should I do? How should I choose?

What are good summer programs in Europe for August September?

I am a student from Germany and i won't have semester break before August. I would love to spend my free time from August- mid October studying more and doing some summer schools or other programs in the are of international relations/politics/diplomacy/.. However all the programs in Europe that i found start before august and i therefore won't be able to attend them. Does anyone have any good ideas what to do around this time of the year? Of course internships are also an option but i can't seem to find one that is fitting me. I am currently studying a BA of Korean Studies (minor Chinese studies) but want to do my MA in the field of international relations...

Best Universities in the field of International Relations/International Politics?

I am currently graduating in Korean Studies, but i want to do a MA in International Relations/Politics. My goal for the future is to get into the EU or the UN, both of which require a very good degree from a god university. Other than Harvard and LSE (just wayyyy too expensive) what are good options for doing a Masters in this field? Which universities are famous for IR? I heard a lot about Sciences Po in Paris? What are other good options, preferably in Europe?

I love participating in model UN and am on the debate team. I know law is a related career but I'm thinking about other careers where this skill could be applied but not just in law.
