    i am currently on route to study criminology and psychology at keele, i have my place but i'm having a melt down

    i'm worried i have not made the right decision and that i should change criminology for sociology,

    i really want to be a relief worker or charity work and teach but i don't know if psychology is enough to do that i also don't want to eliminate law as a further opition in the future, my a-levels were law, psychology and sociology

    i'm not sure yet what career i want and criminology looks very interesting and i may want a career in that to so i'm not really sure what to do

    i would really like to hear your opinions if you can help me x

    If you want to work with people then I don't see why Psychology wouldn't be enough :s I'm doing Psychology and I want to do a Clinical PhD which is all about working with people so I don't think it will affect your parameters about who you can and can't work with. Keele also has a great department to pursue any Psychology related career so that may be a bonus.
    I did Sociology for A level but can't say much about what it might be like as a degree. I have friends doing masters in Criminology so that is always an option after your degree if you feel you still want to study it.
    Law is always an option through a conversion whether you do it in 5 years time or 15. Good luck whatever you decide to do
