I'm in my 4 semester of college and I've been doing general stuff and I still don't know what to be sadly

My strengths were :Psychology and sociology
Mediocore: English
Weakness: Math and science.

Sadly, I don't think I should major in Psychology or sociology because they are the most useless majors(But I could argue why they can be very helpful in the world ;P) because its terribly hard to find a job with those majors.

English I'm okay at. I love sharing my views in detail its just that when it comes to putting my ideas on paper, im not really good at it.

Math and science... ehh.... I feel that I CAN do it if I put in the hours of studying. But hey whats the point of studying something you don't even like? Personally, I'd pick math over science If I had to choose between math or science.

Its so hard to find a major so I'm asking for suggestions.

    how about business. though if you dont like math, not the accounting path. religious studies. you could become a preacher. or a buddhist teacher. or any kind of teacher--they're in demand right now. ask you radvisor. go to seminars on topics that interest you. is there a faculty member you admire? what did they major in?

    In the spirit of business, how about advertising / communications? Use your psychology / sociology background to aid yourself in either of these fields, both drawing on English and no math / physical science for the most part.

    Research communications jobs: not those in tv/video media but rather in organizations and companies.
