Hey guys. I'm currently finishing up for my associates degree. I'm currently undecided and intend on either going for a Psychology or Philosophy bachelor's (and most likely, I'll want to attend grad school for one of these). With psychology, I'll have much more prospects with bachelor's degree and with a graduate degree. With philosophy, undergraduate degrees don't seem very useful unless you're going to law school, while graduate degrees are often best for those wanting to become philosophy professors.
Now, the closest university to my location has a graduate program for psychology, but only has a bachelor's program for philosophy. So, I'd have to relocate in order to attend a grad school for philosophy if I wish to go down that route.
The problem here is that philosophy is my greatest interest in life. I feel naturally born to think and to think well. It's all I want to do with my life, for the most part. Yet, the extra effort which would be required to actually do something with a philosophy degree seems staggering in comparison to a simple psychology degree. Yet, psychology isn't my highest interest -- it's merely something I can enjoy. Additionally, I'm not a people person at all and I'd imagine a psych major would need some level of interpersonal skills (which I lack almost completely). A philosophy major would merely require a great thinker potential capable of teaching. That sounds like something I can do.
Thus, I'm stuck. Do I go with my heart and just try philosophy, regardless of where I may end up? Or, do I just play it safe and go with a psych major, even if I'm not really entirely satisfied or happy with that sort of occupation?
