  • I've encountered a good amount of people by now with degrees in very lucrative fields like CS just to see a good amount so down bad mentally that I'm really starting to consider pursuing something I'd actually be interested in: psychology.

    I've always been big into mental health as someone whose struggled with it growing up, so having the chance to learn more about not only how we operate but also having the potential to do things like counseling one on one with people sounds lowkey fit for me (even heard the pay is good).

    I know there also seems to be a bit of a downer feeling towards this degree it seems though. I'd like to hear your thoughts though..

    (also looking forward to finishing Stats rn & never having to do Math again if I pursue this field )

    healthcare is good

    were you doing tht field yourself?

    and are the classes crazy

  • Yeah I got a BS in psychology and like homie said it鈥檚 not really worth anything. You don鈥檛 start practicing actual psychology until you receive at least a masters.

    I鈥檝e never had a problem with a Bachelors in ECON. No one understands the field that鈥檚 outside of it so I鈥檝e benefited from it greatly. I鈥檓 a financial advisor for a Forbes ranked practice.

  • A bachelors in Psychology will get you a job in the non-profit sector or government doing human service work.

  • No I value my time and money

    Psych/mental health field is more for personal gratification than a stable income/lifestyle unless you go all the way with it imo (in most cases)
