    @MonseC423 Mine is coming in a few minutes. I'm contemplating whether to do every possible engineering career or just the main ones.

    For me I am going to learn how to weld, and get my certification in it. After I do that and find a good job I am going to go to school for underwater welding. So my high school has career class's people can take and there are 4 class's for welding, so I am going to take all of them along with a bunch of math class's like geometry.

    Hey! I'd thought I'd contribute to this with my chosen field... Law/Legal studies:

    You need a bachelor's degree before you can get your law degree/40 courses and recommended degrees are:

    • Political Science
    • U.S. Government and policies
    • Government policy
    • Pre-law (depending on your legal field. Mine doesn't require this)
    • Political studies

    And those are just a few of many recommended studies for legal fields! :D

    What about translating and interpreting? I know several language courses would be necessary, but I don't know if much of anything else is.

    Yes definitely!!! I am undecided on if I want to become an English professor with a PhD in English or If I want to become a journalist (still with an English PhD). And I don't know if my school has any classes to help me prepare for it.

    I would suggest taking as many English-related classes as possible and meeting the requirements for your state. 😊

    I'm interested in the Linguistic field as well, but I'm going to take the rabbit out of the hat and say, perhaps Sociology/Psychology (since you are interacting with humans and you need to convey the message they want), Business or Government (if you're translating for that field), Computer science (If you're interested in computational linguistics, interpreting might be useful here).
