I'm a senior in high school and am having trouble figuring out my major. I do really love psychology and I've taken some courses in high school, but I'm done some research and realized the job prospects are pretty poor and an expensive and long education is necessary to find any employment. Not to mention, it's pretty popular and competitive (at least, that's what I've heard).
However, I feel like feel like I'm pretty dedicated to it and I would want to pursue at least a masters degree. What I'm wondering is, would it be a good decision to follow this path? Are the job prospects good with a masters? I also am not keen on the counseling aspect of psychology; I'm more interested in experimental psychology and research. Would this be feasible?
Also, would neuroscience be a more practical major? If not, are there any other practical majors to either do instead of psychology or double major with psychology? I'm particularly looking for something to pair with psychology that would ameliorate job prospects.
Thank you to anyone who responds!
