What should I major in for Human Resources?
Hi, I'm a senior in high school and have recently been accepted to all my colleges so now I'm trying to make my decision on which I should go.
I've always been interested in Psychology, but I know that it's not a great major because it's hard to find a job in this field. So I've been looking into different fields that could be related to Psychology. Human Resources is something that I found that I might be interested in. There are two different schools that I'm looking into and they both have different majors related to this field. I'm not sure which is the right path.
One of the schools has a Psychology major with a specialization in Industrial/Organizational Psychology that you can choose in your junior year I believe. If I do go with this then I will get my bachelor's in I/O Psychology then get my masters in Human Resources from another graduate school that is connected with this I/O program.
Coincidentally, the school that is connected to the I/O program is one of my other choices for my undergraduate studies. This school does not have an Industrial/Organizational Psychology program. If I go here than I plan on majoring in Human Resources Management with a minor in Psychology. After this, I would get my masters in Human Resources Management or maybe anything else that might be a better choice, I'm not sure yet.
Those are my choices and I would appreciate it if you guys could let me know which is the better decision or even if there is any other path to take.
