What should I major in in order to easily find a job in Ireland?
In four years my husband and I are moving to Ireland. he is an Irish citizen so we don't need to worry about working papers. I have two more years of school left and I'm stuck on what to major in.

You don't state your nationality but note that marriage to an Irish citizen does NOT guarantee that you will be admitted to the country. You may have to get visa and work permit. At least you have plenty of time to sort this out. Ian M

There is a technology boom there now and they are in need of people in the medical field. However, go to school for a subject that interests you because you don't need to worry about EU citizenship.
