This is the dilemma I am facing: I have to decide what to do with the main next quarter. I plan to be a health educator (or counselor, I described in detail below what I would do). However, no offer health sciences major at my school. The closest is PEAK (I do not care). Thanks in advance for your help and for reading this MedlinePlus (sorry for writing so much!) Thus, these two major companies that degree would be best for this type of work: Human Biology or Psychology. Or both (or double major)? Or none of them is going to help? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I talked to a counselor at school and told me that the Human Biology degree would work and so can psychology degree. I am currently a Psychology minor and am considering switching to Psych as a major, but I'm not sure if it will help me get the kind of job I want. I am interested in becoming a health educator and / or counselor. My dream is to help people understand their options in life have a great impact on them, teach them what they can do to improve your life, promote and maintain good health and live happier. For example, teach them to stop smoking or eating healthier, etcetra .. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Okay, so I was wondering if a degree in psychology and / or biology of Health might work (as my advisor said)? MedlinePlus The reason is because we want to make sure I tried searching online about these degrees, but could not find anything related to this work. I totally find anything with the highest bio that could help me become a health educator ... psychology but maybe if I Health Psych. Leo is an option, but I'm not sure I would even work directly to health educator (as health psychology is a new field and can not seem to be much I could find on it) MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I really need help from someone. Especially if they are (or are working as student) Health Educator job as a career /. Please help me. MedlinePlus And please do not mention other careers as Health Sciences if not mentioned above. I just want to know of these specialties working: MedlinePlus Psychology or Human Bio. MedlinePlus And of the two, it would be better to focus on? Or is it better to double major? Thanks ...
