Hey so I wanted to pick Biology, Psychology and Sociology for Sixthform however I was wondering what career path they lead to and do they suit each other?
Hello! My degree is in Sociology and my masters is in Psychology.
A lot of students who study the social sciences typically go to work in the public sector; teaching, social work, psychiatry etc. Each one has a variety of challenges.
Firstly, the market for Psychology graduates is very saturated and to be a registered psychologist you need to have done a doctorate in this area. For my social science students I typically recommend doing some sort of post graduate certificate or masters afterwards which specialises you in an industry - I went into teaching. There tends to be steady work for people who can teach Psychology. If you wanted to do social work you could do a degree in it, or, there are various opportunities to fast track into it if you have done a social science type subject at degree level (its my back up plan if I loose my job).
If you were interested in nursing like another poster suggested, it might be best replacing one of the social science subjects with another science like chemistry. I teach on a Nursing Access to HE pathway and students typically do two sciences and one social science
I'm sure you will do great! Make time to enjoy studying too! I loved college
