What kind of skill sets does one need to be of best help to addressing climate change? It would seem like the most obvious choice is to major in environmental science. Otherwise, maybe political science to deal with legislators and capital hill? Or "who cares what you study undergrad" and go to law school?

In studying for my Behavioral Statistics final (it’s a statistics class dealing with psychology research methods) I’ve realized something. I actually kind of enjoy math. As long as I don’t have to memorize formulas (as long as they are right there as I’m going through the work) it’s actually kind of comforting and fun. In fact, every math class I’ve taken in college (I’ve taken two remedial algebras, college algebra, and regular statistics before this class) I’ve enjoyed and made an A in.
I’m really struggling about what I want to major in (I’m in psychology but I don’t have it in the gas tank to get a PhD), but I know that a lot of people don’t like math. They don’t get it. I do, so I’ve got something there, right?
The only problem is, I don’t know what to do with it. These are the parameters… maybe you can think of something that fits? [more inside]

I'm a sophomore biology major but I want to get internships in consulting firms or pharmaceutical companies, both of which are coming to my school tomorrow for career fairs.

I am a second semester sophomore, pre-med student who has been reconsidering his options for the past few weeks. My grades in pre-med courses, no matter how hard I try, are extremely lackluster and my GPA in those courses barely hovers over a 3.0 (luckily, this is calculated after only four eligible courses). Furthermore, when I calculated my non pre-med courses I found that I had a 3.8, which was both encouraging (since I go to a top 10 school; I was a little happy that I had a GPA like this) and demoralizing because I've pretty much convinced myself that my academic strengths lie in anything BUT the natural sciences.

I'm a 3rd years college students and I'm really confuse as of what I want to do in life.
In my first two years I thought I wanted to become a computer engineer, since I was always like working with computer. The problems was I fail Calculus 2 times and Chemistry 2 times. Therefore I think I'm not cut out for the programs. The reason I fail, is just because I don't understand the subject and it bored me most of the time.
Anyhow after failing Calculus, I thought math is just not the thing for me, so I decided to go for Nursing, since the math requirement is not so much. During my summer break, I took BIO 156 (Introduction to Biology) and I failed the class. I'm currently taking the class again and I'm not doing so well either. The subject just doesn't interest me, and it's very hard to understand. I also attend the help session, but still I'm not doing so well.
My question is what major should I be going for? I think science and math is just not my strong area, so I'm trying to figure out a major that doesn't require much science and math. I'm really confuse right now, I hope someone can help.
