Need College Degree Advice

Posted by   + Show Post
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 JD and MPH dual degree

Working a legal and social work degree is hard.  If you want to do both you have to go after a legal degree (lawyer) and then pick-up social work cases.  That would mean many years of college.  You need to narrow down what specific field you want a career in and then go after that goal.

Nurse? Paralegal? Social work? Psychology?

You could always major in one like Paralegal and minor in Psychology, or vice versa. I'm trying to finish my Psychology degree and want to also get my graphic design degree.

I do Criminal Justice Online with Lincoln Online. I started out wanting to be a cop and work my way up but I then decided on being a Probation Officer. Now I am sticking to being a Youth Counselor. I relate to kids with issues I myself was a troubled teen but being in the system for getting in trouble was the best thing ever for me.

I just want to help kids without being the bad guy.
