What should I major/minor in?


Hi!! I need some help decided my major/minor for college.

I'm not 100% sure on what I want to do as a career, but I'm leaning towards becoming a college professor. However, I would love to study law as well. If I possibly wanted to become a law professor, which should I major in; law or education?

I want to make sure I have a steady career to fall back on in case I decided to not go the law professor route. So my question is, would a major in education or law provide that security for me?

Thank you for the help! I hope my question makes sense! :)

Education has fairly low pay but law needs a JD so it is a personal choice but Iโ€™d lean towards law as it is a better prep for a JD

I think law is a good route to take. By going through law school you have experience that future students would want that is much difficult to get when going through just an education degree. I hope you feel confident in whatever choice you make!

Law. Professors are experts in their field, and many do not have educational backgrounds. If you want to teach a certain subject as a college professor, do the field you are interested in. Hope this helps!
