I understand. My BS is in Family Studies and there aren't many jobs that directly align with that major. But the beauty of your degree, in my opinion, is that it applies to EVERYTHING! Knowing about people (how they learn, think, feel, and interact) is the most important and valuable knowledge to have! Instead of thinking about what job your degree can land you, think about how your passions (the outdoors and creativity) can integrate with your knowledge of people. Focus on what you love to do rather than what you know from your formal education. If you do what you love, you'll never "work" a day in your life. The knowledge you gained from your degree program should support your life's work, not be the center of it.
