So I'm going to be going to collage but have no idea what to study.

Here are some ideas that flew off the top of my head.

Criminal justice for literally
no other reason then liking the sound of agent.
Computer stuff (so I can do awesome coding and hacking like felicity smoke)
Electrical engineer (for building cool tech hardware)
Idk about anything else really
Now my love is music,acting and adventuring but there
Isn't really anything that calls to me for a practical job many be I could become a private investigator! Or odd entrepreneur

Steve Jerbs took a course in typography and made billions. Think about that while you ponder what degrees are "practical".

...modes and scales are still useless.

If you do a degree you don't enjoy then you'll hate it in the latter part of your college career.

That's what I'm afraid of. But the parents keep pushing me to get as they call a real study.

College is a time for adventure and exploration. Take a variety of courses and see what attracts you. Explore! There are no lame majors, just lame students who were unprepared or failed to thrive.

I hadn't really thought about that. But that sounds pretty fair!

get some sort of business degree if you are unsure. No matter what field you decide to work in, you will be working for a business. Understanding how businesses work will make it easy to climb ranks. And if you randomly have an epiphany and decide you wanna start your own business, you already got a degree and it should be easier to get a loan to get you started. There are tons of applications for that kind of degree

What does criminal justice prepare you for? Is it like criminology? Or do you really become an agent there?

I can't believe you are whoring yourself out like that.

I'd argue that typography teaches you a lot about the mechanics behind aesthetics and he successfully applied that to making pretty products that captured peoples hearts.

collages are fun i liked making them when i was in elementary school

as stated before, try to take lots of electives to make you a more rounded person. But if you want to make money go for pharmacy or something like that. If you go for business or marketing/graphic design you face a harsh world of being told what to do and layoffs.

Ha, Criminal Justice. Better come to school with crayons and your wide ruled notebook.

Underwater Basket Weaving. JK. Hit community college first maybe. Take some welding, or trade classes just to see if theres anything that interests you, and its relatively cheap compared to a University. Hitting the workforce isn’t bad either. I took a year off after high school and just worked, then fell into a scholarship program and took machine shop, I didn’t like it so I dropped out and went into the military and now I have like 60 something credits in meteorology related classes. Getting your feet wet is the easiest way to learn what you want to do. If you love guitars, maybe an electronics class would suit you to build effects pedals, repair guitars and that sort of thing. Good luck!

Join the army first. Let them pay for your mistakes.
Plus you get to travel to distant lands, meet exciting and exotic peoples and kill them.

You seem to have no clue how the job market works.

I have a degree in criminology and political science. I don't know what you mean by 'agent'. If you want to work in the police force, at least here, there are several requirements:

- University degrees aren't "required" but they're required. You won't get shit without a degree or diploma
- You can't have any vision impairments (no glasses, contacts, etc.)
- No pre-existing heart conditions
- You have to pass a 7 stage interview process which includes IQ testing, personality questionnaires, one-on-one interviews, psychological examinations, physical testing, situational scenarios (ie. They turn a TV on, play a scenario and you have to act out how you would respond to that scenario.)
- You generally have to have a good amount of volunteer hours
- You have to be CPR and First Aid certified (Both cost hundreds of dollars for certification)
- You have to have a full drivers license with a good driving record, and a given amount of experience driving
- You have to have a prior job history (like with any decent job you apply for)
- You have to have a good amount of letters of reference
- Your references will then go through an interview with a police recruiter (I believe). They'll be asked character questions, work experience questions. They'll look for inconsistencies.
- After completion you go to a 6 month training session where you live in the police academy during the week and may go home on weekends.


Now this is the process to become a constable. Police forces are generally closed systems and you have to start at the bottom (constable) and work your way up. Detectives aren't hired externally. You'll have to work as a constable for I believe at least 5-6 years in order to move up the ladder. If you're looking to get into the FBI and become an 'agent'... Good luck.


EDIT: You'd better not be caught in any type of lies during the interview process or you're effectively done as a police officer in the district in which you applied.

Also, delete your social media early if you have anything which would kill your chances of employment.

A degree on its own won't get you anything.

Don't go dude. You can learn all that shit for free online if you really want to. Our society brainwashes kids into thinking they have no options outside of throwing down thousands of dollars towards their "education", but that's is simply untrue.

Not for a lot of people. And the cost is beginning to outweigh the benefits.
