Hi! You may enjoy being a counselor or psychologist. According to this site, “Online bachelor’s degree programs in counseling are usually in substance abuse, addictions, or human behavior areas. Students gain a firm foundation in psychology and sociology, through classes such as child development, addiction, abnormal psychology, and emotional disorders. Other classes discuss particular counseling issues, such as case management, drugs and behavior, substance abuse recovery, counseling skills, and counselor ethics.”

And, according to this site, “Psychology major classes explore topics like social psychology, personality, psychology of learning, and depression and mood disorders. Many online psychology programs require that students work in psychology labs or on research projects.”

Good luck as you explore your choices! 🙂
