I’m a second year engineering student. I’ve taken up Information Science and Engineering. I don’t want to be placed in MNCs and work with something related to Computer Science. I want to get into some other field. Which field can I get into? Can I do my Masters in some other field except this one? Actually I would like to take up Psychology; can I take it up even after engineering? If yes, how can I do so?
The minimum eligibility for a Masters in Psychology is an Honours undergraduate degree in Psychology or Psychology as a subject in graduation. However, there are some institutes that may require the candidates to have a Bachelor’s degree in any discipline. So, you may go for psychology studies even after completion of your engineering degree.
