Question by : Double Major: Philosophy or Biology, which one compliments Psychology better?
Well, Psychology is my main major and while I’m in college I just thought “hell as long as i’m in college I might as well take advantage of it and do a double major instead of having a minor”
I’m hoping to become a Psychologist in the near future and am wondering what double major would be best. Philosophy/Psychology or Biology/Psychology?
I know the ultimate decision is mine but I would be interesting to get other peoples input. So which major would be best? What should I expect in these majors(ex: lots of reading, memorization, math, etc.)? What is the difficulty levels of these two majors?
BTW, I’m more into the counseling aspects of psychology rather than the experimental side of it.
@Wiz : I love the idea of having math as a major but i’m bad at math(who isn’t). The class itself is enjoyable but it’s definitely not one of my strengths.

A much better match would be Math, since you will need a PhD to be a counselor and that requires a lot of statistics. Actually to get you Doctorate in Counseling Psychology, it would be better to have a different major as an undergraduate with a minor in Psychology; for instance: Math. You will certainly need the math for your Master’s as well as the Doctorate and will get all the Psychology you need in the graduate programs.
