I need some advice on what college degree I should go for. I'm 36 yrs old and wanting to go back to school. I am interested in the law, working with the deaf and blind and also the health field. Any ideas and advice?

A sociology or a social work degree could help you in those fields.

Sociology, Psych, Human Services, Human Development/Family Services or Social Work. Even a Paralegal degree.

Maybe go down to the college you're planning on attending to talk to a counselor. They should be able to provide you with a list of required classes to complete each concentration.

I know when I was picking my major I decided against a couple concentrations solely based on the courses required.

I agree with these. It will just depend on what you ultimately wish to focus on after you get it.
