I'm about to start my third year of college majoring in biology but I have little desire to pursue a career in science. Should I stick it out for another two years because I don't know what I want to do and majoring in science is a smart/safe option just in case things don't work out, or should I switch to something potentially more applicable?
Have an Answer?
What are your other interests? Also, what are your perceptions about what a career in science is like? Maybe you could try an internship before switching (I know getting one is easier said than done).
Speaking very broadly, a science degree is "better" to have than, say, and English or other humanities degree if you really don't know what you want to do at your age (totally normal). Mainly, it is perceived that you can handle more challenging coursework if you have a bachelor's in biology.
But if you were thinking of switching to sometihing like accounting, computer science, or something else for which you need very specialized training, you might want to consider switching.
