Is Psychology A Good Major?

I'm going to college in January and I really don't know what to go for. I like and am really interested in Psychology and Sociology,but everyone keeps telling me it's a waste of my time and money :(( I like it,but I don't want to waste my time. The only other things I like are reading classic books and fashion..... I don't know what to do. So is it a waste?

Best Answer

It is if you plan on following it with a masters degree. My best friend doubled in psychology and art education and just graduated. She needs to go back if she wants to get a job in the field but still has no regrets as she finds it very interesting.
Good luck in whatever you do!
