I'm going to be a sophomore soon, and I'm an English Literature major. I'm probably going to stick with it because it's a flexible major, and I like it, lol. However, I need to double major or minor in something because I'll be short on credits. But I don't know what I want to do.
For a while I've wanted to go into journalism and double major in mass communications, but newspapers are basically dying. Also, I'm afraid that you have to be super assertive and extroverted for that profession, and I'm neither, even if I tried.
I'm also really interested in psychology or maybe even teaching in different countries.
(So basically I like writing and helping people.)
Agh... does anyone have advice on possible majors or minors that are flexible? Like... can I still teach if I don't have a teaching degree? I'm sure you need a major in psychology to become a psychologist... so would double majoring in psychology be better overall (since you really don't need a mass communications major to become a journalist, they're mostly interested in experience).
I should probably know all of this stuff already... it's hard for me to digest all the details. Any type of advice, opinions, or your experiences with these majors/careers is appreciated.
