Should I apply for psychology, criminology or criminal justice?

Question by ???: Should I apply for psychology, criminology or criminal justice?
I don’t really know what I’d like to get into, and I heard that its hard to find jobs with a degree in psychology. I’m also not sure if I’d want to get into criminology or criminal justice, but I have a few jobs in mind in that field. What do you think?

A bachelor’s in Psychology is probably the most useless degree ever. So unless you are planning on getting your master’s, I would stay away from that major. :) good luck in college by the way

    a BSc in psychology is NOT a useless degree! it has so many transferable skills, which empolyees look for, such as problem- solving and understanding people. At first, yes, it may be hard ot get a career with just a psychology degree as further training is needed, however once further training has been taken it is easy to get jobs. In relation to being unsure what to do, if you were to complete a BSc psychology degree, you could do an Msc in say criminology or forensics ( Which drawas on the criminal justice system.

    All three degrees would be good choices for jobs within the criminal justice field. It depends on what specific jobs you are interested in though. Out of the three, I think that criminology might be best, but there might better majors for what you want to do. For example, if you want to become a forensic scientist ot work in a crime lab, you might want to major in forensic science, biology, or chemistry. If you want to become a paralegal, you might want to major in English or prelaw. Choose a couple of careers that you are pretty certain that you would like, and then choose a degree that is good for those, but that also allow for other options.
