What are some jobs related to social justice?

I've come to realize that my only passion is social justice, especially for lgbtq and poc. I do also have a desire to help people and a knack for writing. However I feel like I would not thrive on one-on-one work like becoming a councelor because it feels too personal and too much pressure,...

Should English be my minor or 2nd major?

I have committed to my college as a psychology major. I am looking at a career in either (or both, if possible) research psychology or editing and publishing. Do you think I can land a job in editing when English is only my minor? Is it worth the extra effort to double major? How do minors...

How stable is a job in research psychology?

Meaning, is it like an art career where I am no longer employed after a project ends? If it matters, I am most interested in pursuing a career in the developmental and abnormal fields. #psychology...

What are your favorite resources to read about psychology research?

Not quite a college or career question, but this seems like an appropriate place to converse :). I like Psychology Today, Google Scholar, The Epoch Times, and Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. I'm having trouble finding social media accounts that post...

What degree should I get in order to become a research psychologist?

One college I'm looking at has a research psych track that is simply a bachelor's degree, which doesn't sound right to me. Another college I'm looking at recomends a master's and then possibly continuing education at a grad school. Another college, which is a research college, has a research...

Editors and publishers- what was your major?

I've heard that English is too broad and journalism is dying. Are these true? What did you major in to become an editor or publisher? I intend to major in psychology, but I am looking to dual major or minor in some kind of English. Can I still get a career as a publisher or editor if I just...

How do research psychologists get paid? And how well?

Where does the money come from- the institute you work for, funding from organizations that support your research, people and magazines that want to publicize your work? Do you get paid salary or commission? How much do you make a year? Is the income stable? Is the amount you are paid...
