What to pick in college as a major?

I want a major where I can find a nice subtle job right after college with a bachelors degree that has good pay, not the highest, but not the lowest. A job where I'd enjoy my self (well at least not hate it). And a job where I wouldn't be always stressed out and, where "work" stayed at work and not at home. A job where I could buy a home a raise a family. I'm currently finishing off my first semester of college and I'm doing good in my classes except for my International Relations class. Which is all about theories and confuses me because all i read about are opinions with no concrete answers or solutions. However, the international aspects of what's really going on in the world interests me. I did horrible on the math part of the act and received a sub score of 14. My sub sores in the other criteria were above 20. I have no idea what to choose and it's killing me and getting in the way of my studies. It's heavily discouraging me as to why I'm even here and I feel like I'm on the border of depression. I was thinking of degrees in Business, Engineering, Human Resource, or Human sciences such as nutrition and exercise. a medical job would be nice, like helping people or working with people, or maybe being some sort of technician but I don't actually know what these people do. Other than those my mind is completely blocked off from knowledge of other degrees I'd succeed it. I did some research but most of it is really biased and the concrete articles are all degrees that require so much mathematical understanding. Engineer, businessman, and doctor are the only things I know that will give you a prosperous life. I love technology, I build my own pc's at home but that just requires buying the parts and putting them in the right slots in the case. I like problem solving. And the idea of being a "doctor" excites me extremely, so anything in the medical field would be maybe nice? i'm not sure. Math is my weakness and it always has been, I could work at it and get a degree in a high pay math degree but I'd be mediocre and unhappy. Can someone please share some information with me as to what i should do so I wouldn't be in such a slump? I have no idea what I want to do. I met with my first year adviser, talked to tons of people, and read several articles but i still don't know what I am right for.

I'm a college senior and I still have no idea of what I want to be after school so you're definitely not alone. The nice thing about medical school is that you can major in whatever you want along as you complete the prereqs. These only include 2 math classes. Biology majors are probably most common for premed path... More

I had similar criteria to you when I was trying to decide on a major. In all honesty, you can't have all those criteria if you want a good paying job. But, you seem like you would do well working with people. Let mind remind you that a medical job will cause stress; however, a dietitian actually has low stress levels (... More
