Which is more useful?

<p>Economics/Haas + Psychology
Economics/Haas + Sociology?</p>

<p>I want a career in the business field, but am very interested in societal/human behavior. Which one (Sociology or Psychology) would help me more in business? Ideally, I'd like to go into management, but the specific area of business that I'll enter might change over time.</p>

<p>Based on my limited knowledge of both subjects, I'd say sociology. Psychology seems to be something more science based, though you could avoid the biological side of it. It just seems like it would help you less than sociology would.</p>

<p>Hmm yeah good point. Psych does have lots of prereqs involving MCB...Thanks :)</p>

<p>Anyone else?</p>

<p>Nah, I say go for psych (sorry, I'm biased). At least in psychology, you'll be learning more about how the mind works, and I might even enjoy the biological aspect of it (heard of neuromarketing? it's a pretty novel field). You'll learn about human emotions, personalities, social behavior, and much more. I think it's more holistic if you want to learn about human behavior, and has a strong research background. Whereas sociology, I think you'll be mostly learning about theories, not necessarily science based, but more in depth about cultural factors. If your plans involve dealing with people in a personal manner, psychology will be more relevant. I'm not sure what you mean by MCB prereq's, it only has 1 bio req., which you can fulfill by AP credits or even CC units.</p>

<p>Ahhh that's a good point tooo! :/
And I do plan on mostly dealing with people in a personal manner (if I become a manager or something).
Just all the Bio reqs really turn me off...and the fact that there are so many reqs that don't overlap with Haas'. I think if I did Sociology, I wouldn't even have to take summer classes and I could get an internship in the summer instead.
On the other hannnddd I keep hearing about how Sociology is a joke major.
I guess the only bad part about Psych is that I really really really don't care about the biology aspect of it haha.</p>

<p>What do people with Econ+Sociology majors typically get jobs in, anyways?
Sigh. If only getting into Haas was guaranteed. Then I don't have to deal with all this stuff -_____-</p>

<p>Haas isn't that much better than Econ. And with Econ's upper-division requirements, you can easily graduate in 3 years (and maybe even less than that). So, you should be able to double major without any difficulty (I think the department actually expects you to double major because of the lower number of required classes). Haas, on the other hand, has a crapload of requirements for a degree...</p>
