Help! I don't know what I want to study in grad school...?
I am applying to a Master's degree program and I don't know which of these programs to choose, but they all interest me: 1. Library and Information Science- combined Database Management and Archival Studies Track (but the school is in California and I live in Florida, so I have to move). 2. History- Public History Track* 3. Journalism or English 4. Education, M.A. (but I don't want to teach high school or under) 5. Counselor- School Counseling Track (Counselor Education) 6. Social Work 7. Higher Education, M.A. 8. Social Science or English- Community College Education Track *I have a B.A. in History already. So, out of all these majors, which one pays the best or will land me a job faster and/or easier? And will I need a PH.D. to work in any of these fields, b/c I don't want to get one! Any suggestions? Please, no one say stuff like Engineering, Healthcare, Law or Business because I am terrible at math, science/biology, and all those heavy subjects. I am a little good at Economics, but not so good that I would enter into the field. Yet, I won't mind going into government with my History degree, though! Oh I don't know whether I want to teach community college, be a journalist/editor/writer, become a college academic advisor or high school guidance counselor, work in the Historical field as a Historian or Archivist, or be a Librarian.

Sounds like you really have no business being in grad school. For something so expensive, maybe you should sit a year out and figure out what direction you really want to go. Maybe you could do research for a university or teach undergrads in an area that you like... More
