Me too! I like helping people. In one way or another, it is fate. Psychology can be a good base. If you are more leaning towards counseling, you actually do not need a degree in that but a handful of Psychology courses. Since this is your second degree, you could most likely get a handful of courses than go for your masters. It sure sounds like you are headed toward the Master's path sooner or later!

That is one thing I wish my degree had a few more courses in nutrition. Down the road, I might take a couple from the community colleges around here.

I find it exciting that we are on similar paths. After I get my degree in Exercise Science, I would like to get my masters in Counseling or work for one of the companies in town that organize races from 5K to a Full Marathon.

Truthfully, I'm not 100% certain. I've always wanted to work with people, in a profession that I'd feel I'm making a difference to the quality of their lives. My advisor at my previous university suggested the science as a good basis for professional schools such as medicine, which could be nice, except I'm not completely sold on the idea that the rewards and the effort balance out (almost all my friends are in med-school though). I think Psych will open up a lot of professions wherein I will be able to work with people, whether it be counseling, education, or whatever.

As I study more, I might switch to nutrition as my major, because it is fairly similar to my previous degree and I really do enjoy it a lot - plus, I get to work with people!

Also, I have considered Physiotherapy or Occupational Therapy too. Both are masters degree programs, and part of my degree courses at the moment, are fulfilling courses that I would need and don't yet have for both PT and OT. My current roommate is a 1st year OT and she's really keen on getting me into it.

So I'm not exactly sure about my path yet, but I'm praying about it and hopefully things will clear up for me very soon.

Its exciting to hear that our studies are so similar!

emoticon Our majors sound similar. My major is Exercise Science (also spark inspired) with a minor of Psychology. What do you hope to do with Psychology? Any specific path?

I'm attending the University of Alberta, in Canada.

I'm a first year Psychology (sciences) student, with my minor in Nutrition (spark inspired). The degree I'm working on should take only 2.5 years to complete, as it is an after-degree (first one was a double major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology).

Hi team! I'm a returning university student. After joining and having consistent activity since January this year, I was overwhelmed by a ton of things that happened in my life and took a 2 month break from spark (such a bad move - just in case somebody's considering). I'm back now, because I need spark and sparkers in my life! I hope to encourage and be encouraged by this team!
