Human Services and Sociology double major

Why did you choose this major, and does/did it seem like the right major for you? Why?

I entered my freshman year having chosen an undecided major. I knew that I wanted to work with people in a direct care capacity such as counseling but was unsure what major would fit the best. Through my Intro to College course I learned about various majors and chose Sociology. After my first sociology class I figured out that Sociology was not exactly the right major for me, as it was based more in research and less in direct care. Still, I loved the classes so I chose to pursue a double major in Sociology and Human Services. For me, this decision was the best one I could have made. I not only got to take classes that I broadened my understanding of populations, but I also learned practical skills that I now use at work every day.
