Question by J.: Which major is best for a BA: Global studies, religious studies, psychobiology, psychology, or sociology?
I’m considering these majors for my bachelor of arts (BA) degree at UCLA. Please help me understand which degree is more beneficial towards a teaching career, which one is most interesting (in you opinion), which one is the most challenging, which one is most usable in the outside working world, etc. Just information, please!! Thank you

All of these degrees will require a Master’s or higher to be useful in their own right.What do you want to teach? If you want to teach K-12 then you need to be majoring in education to get a license. If you want to teach middle school or high school and you have a specific subject in mind, such as history, then you could perhaps minor or double major. If you want to teach at the college level, then you will need to at least get a Master’s degree after you’re done with your BA. I would say psychology or sociology offer the most teaching opportunities at the college level because they are common classes at almost all colleges across the USA.
