    So, I finally did it. I finished my epic saga across academia and landed on a B.S. in Psychology of Human Services. I spanned nearly every field of study imaginable (feel free to max out your imagination here), and I don't know where to go from here other than graduate school. The problem is that I don't care for research at all. My primary focus has always been related to counseling in the same manner and style as Rollo May and Carl Rogers, and having nearly 3 years of experience doing just that via a state job doesn't help motivate me toward starting this journey all over again. Does anyone know of a way to bypass the formalities of further education in this field and just dive right in to the thick of it?

    These days you're not going to get a counselling job with an undergrad degree. I have this same degree, and I'm going for a master's in social work, so i'm more hands on. i recommend social work if you are interested in helping people this way.

    I don't have any advice but.. I'm starting my academic journey this year, going for my BA in psychology but I have a feeling when I get there I might change my mind. I would loooove to do research, so we differ in opinion on that one. What exactly does "human services" entail? Don't you have to do a lot of research in your 11 years of school? What was the most challenging aspect of your schooling and why do you not know where to go from here?
