What is/ was your major in college??

Post by Curly_Aquarius on 3rd June 2010, 1:07 pm

I was responding to a curlies thread and was explaining to her about how I am confused about what I want my Master's major to be. Right now I am getting (almost finished) with my B.A. in Child and Family Studies. I know I want to work with sand teach special needs children and eventually become a BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) But I want my Master's to tie into the teach and behavior aspect of my goals.

So my questions are:

What is/was your major?

What do you plan to do with your degree? (if already have a degree what do you do for a living?)

What are your future goals career wise and educational wise?

I just started my sophmore year in college and I'm a Social Work major. In my senior year I might get a certification in Gerontology (not sure yet). I plan to go to grad school and get my M.S.W focusing on Mental Health and Health Care and become a licensed medical social worker in a hospital or mental health facility.

Hey Ebbz!**waving** Smile I started off wanting to be a Social Work major but also wanted to teach as well. The Geriatric community needs more people like you just like the Special Needs need people like me. I wish you much success Very Happy

Girl I wish I was in your shoes, Do you enjoy baking? Also if you took a certificate program for computers with your degree I bet it would be similar as if you majored in Computers??

I am majoring in education and I hope to teach after I get my B.A. In the career of teaching.. If i want to stick to it I would have to get an M.A but im really into music so idk where life will take me. I also want to get certified to work with children with special needs. But in the back of my mind i've always wanted to be a nurse. Or maybe get my masters in speech pathology.. and so i am rambling... What your majoring sounds really cool Smile

Hi, I was rambling about what I wanted to do for years, I guess it take time for people like us. I really am amazed at myself for deciding what I wanted to do so early in life.

I have to say you all are some smart and determined sistas!!! I love it. I'm currently in college right now in my junior year majoring in mass communications. After I get my Bachelors, I want to eventually go to grad school at get my masters in either Journalism or Media/Film Studies. I want to have a career as a writer and editor for a magazine or maybe move into the film industry. Who knows?!! Tons of opprotunity and I'm open to all of it.

Good luck to everyone!!!

I'm only a junior in high school (soon to be senior, yikes), but I'm only considering two careers right now: a teacher for deaf (or hearing impaired if that was not pc enough [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]) children, preferably little kids cause I don't need the sass lol or a (elementary or even middle) school psychologist. No idea what major though. I only have recently seriously considered the teaching thing, so I have to look into salaries and junk. But yeah. Never in my life would I have believed that I'd consider ANY career in a school LOL. I hate school and have never, ever liked it.


I really want and hope my mom pursues a degree in higher education. I kinda effed her over by being born whilst she was only a freshman, so she never got a chance to really go back to school. Now that I'm about as old as King Tut though, I hope she really considers it.

I didn't finish college, but I'll go back next year. My first major was Journalism, but since that was my stupid miserable cousin's idea. I'm going to major in art and pick up graphics and illustration.

It is not that bad if you scare them on the first week of school. If you come out hard then you will have no problems! I took over in the middles of the school year for a 9th grade math class and those kids were jerks. That tacher let them do anything (that is why he was fired in the middle of the year). I was called "nappy headed *&&^*#" and Medusa and all that stuff. By May, those kids were alot more respectful. I had to make alot of calls to so peoples parents. I even had some parents sit in class with their child. Now that was funny!

I earned my B.A. in Communications (print journalism concentration). I work for a telecommunications company. I'll be finished with my MBA in December.

But what I really want to do is go to law school. I've wanted to do that since 1998. That damn LSAT is no joke! But that's okay because I'm also starting my prep course end of this summer and plan to take the test in Oct. and again in Feb (if needed).

Hope to start school Fall 2011.

I'm currently majoring in Biology and minoring in psychology and chemistry. I think I might also get a certificate in African and African Diaspora studies. I guess I really love learning lol Smile I plan on going to medical school in the future to be a pediatrician. I also want to open up clinics in underprivileged societies (with help from all areas of study: social work, nursing, international relations, everything) to give health care to those who really have problems getting it. If I don't get into med school, I'm still going to work in health care in the community
