Hi I was reading your bio and saw that your studying psychology and social work. I'm actually thinking of studying the same thing! So I was just wandering if you can fill me in like what the classes are like and if how do you like them? Awesome blog btw!
Oh awesome!! And thank you so much! :)
I started out as a Psych major initially bc I took AP Psych in high school and it really interested me. The vast majority of my psych classes were so interesting (minus the 2 stats classes I had to take, but one of them incorporated a lot of psychology stuff so it was better than Calc which I also took which was hell, but that’s not required). For my psych major, I like (and dislike) how it’s very flexible and I can take basically whatever interests me. However it wasn’t very structured and I felt like I wasn’t getting any job skills or anything other than just preparing to do research for my whole life. That’s what interested me in social work, since it’s more involved. It was a structured 2 year program (Idk what your school has or doesn’t have, it could be completely different from mine). But I really love the combination of the two majors. I’m constantly amazed by how much this stuff relates to each other, and I find myself learning about Psych things in my SoWk classes, and vice versa (which makes it both repetitive but easy). Psych classes are pretty easy because you usually just take 4 or 5 exams with one or two big-ish papers or a bunch of small assignments. SoWk classes are usually relatively easy, because there are hardly any tests except for a final and maybe a midterm, but there are a lot of papers, and theories to learn. I’m in my final year of my SOWK program and we’re starting an internship which accompanies a field placement seminar which is very exciting and I’ll be doing that until I graduate in May. Most of the SOWK classes are basically kind of training you for the real world (they’re called like, SOWK Practice 1, 2, and 3, Research 1 and 2, Human Development, Social Policies, and Interviewing Skills, plus an elective of basically whatever population you’re interested in). This could all be very different at your school, but from my understanding Social Work programs have at least a similar structure. Again, psych is more up in the air, because there are a lot more options for you to take. I took classes such as Psych of personality, social psych, developmental psych, psych of infancy and childhood, biological basis of behavior, research methods 1 and 2 (AKA statistics), cognitive psych, and abnormal psych, which were all so interesting and were so fun to learn about.
Sorry, this turned out to be super long, I hope I didn’t scare you away haha. I love it and I’m excited to graduate and start a social work career. Thanks for asking!

My name is Megan, I'm 21, and I'm a type 1 diabetic. I'm from MD, USA, and I'm a junior in college studying psychology and social work.
My blog is basically an explosion of things that I love, and that relate to me, or that I find pretty/cute/funny. I have a bit of an obsessive side, so everything that I like, I love! :)
