How many of you got a degree in something that you weren’t 100% passionate about?
My bachelor’s degree is in General Business Administration, focusing in Accounting and Management. The knowledge I gain from this degree has helped me in the real world, but recently I found myself fantasizing about what degree or career I would have pursued if I wasn’t so worried about the paycheck that came with it.
I came up with four other potential careers or degree programs that I would have like to have pursued if I hadn’t chickened out and gone for the security blanket degree:
- Financial Advisor-career
- Research Assistant-career
- Creative Writing-degree program
- Nutritional Anthropologist-degree program/career
Each of these will get its own post, going into detail about the education requirements, potential job placement and income, and why this career/degree program interests me.
If you could go back to college or go to college in the first place, if future earning and job opportunities weren’t a worry, what degree and/or career would you pursue? Please leave you answer in the comments.
