The entire field of healthcare is expanding so rapidly that employers are having a hard time finding good, qualified individuals to fill their positions. The field of nursing is a good example. Trained and experienced Atlanta nurses often have their pick of several open positions. Experienced nurses can often get higher pay and the best work hours and shifts. The work is still hard, but it can be very rewarding.
For students who like books, media and research, the area of library science may be a great fit. Library science majors go on to work in public and private libraries. And the field is changing as well. It was once dominated by books and printed reference materials, but these days librarians are on the cutting edge of media and often work for private institutions helping provide research to companies. A bachelor’s or master’s degree is usually necessary for advanced library positions.
Students who are attending a university with the hopes of going on to medical school have many opportunities when choosing an undergraduate degree. A microbiology major is a good choice. Microbiology is the study of small organisms. It’s related to the study of bacteria and parasites. It’s a strong science that will go well with a health degree after graduation.
