It’s no secret that the pandemic changed the game for well… everyone. No matter where you look, things just aren’t the same as they were a year ago, a.k.a. when you were still planning on whether or not to download that ridiculous app that had everyone dancing on your IG stories. Admit it, you tried learning Renegade first but opted for The Weekend instead. 
But hopping on the bandwagon doesn’t always come with an undo button. As you read through this article, give yourself a moment to reflect on what you truly want to do. As jobs are quickly shifting to remote and online settings, consider how the next four years of your life will pan out before deciding on which course you’ll take.

Here are some of the most popular college courses during the pandemic. The following were sourced from FindUniversity.ph, the leading online directory for colleges, courses, and careers in the Philippines.

1. Accountancy

A degree in Accountancy gives individuals the ability to handle business management and bookkeeping. Students will also learn significant knowledge in finance, marketing, and auditing. It’s perfect for those who enjoy a good mix of math, business law, and public speaking. If you’re the type to keep a detailed journal, or who doesn’t shy away from big numbers, this one’s definitely something you should consider.

2. Tourism

Tourism is a four-year degree course that prepares students to manage travel-related businesses. Individuals take courses under the field of hospitality and management in order to directly participate in managing and planning for the tourism industry. If you want to achieve your travels while still getting that coin, this one’s for you!

3. Nursing

A degree in nursing prepares individuals to work in the healthcare sector. Nursing is constantly an in-demand job that provides many working opportunities following graduation. Perfect if you’re the mom of your group of friends. Or if you’re someone who just can’t stay away from science.

4. Criminology

Here’s to the trailblazers of the future, how can you take part in amending the wrong and corrupt in our society? At the end of a four-year course in Criminology, you’ll be equipped with theories, practices, and policies related to criminal behavior and law enforcement. Most importantly, you’ll be steps closer to enacting the change you want to see in the world.

5. Psychology and Behavioral Sciences

Were you the one usually tasked with resolving LQs between your friends? Assigned therapist of the group? Might as well make a career of it, at least you automatically have referrals once you graduate. A degree in Psychology and Behavioral Sciences teaches you both the science and theory behind behavioral sciences, and how you can apply them to understand human behavior.

6. Hotel & Restaurant Management

If strategy and management are some of your strong suits, you should read up on a course on Hotel & Restaurants Management. Students develop a well-rounded background in operations, culinary arts, and communication to work in the hospitality industry and maintain good customer relations. If you like to stay on top of things and enjoy working with people, consider this course as one of your prospects.

7. Engineering

Engineering is a broad field, and you might want to consider doing additional research to get a better idea of what you can specialize in. But solving problems, developing new ideas, and working with technology are non-negotiables when it comes to Engineering. Whether you’re the kid who loves Legos, or loves to play around with prototypes, now’s the time to get serious. Who knows? You might just pioneer the next big thing in the industry.

8. Medical Technology

If whitecoats are your thing but you prefer to be alone most of the time, perhaps a degree in Medical Technology? MedTech equips you with the skills and training needed to conduct laboratory tests. These tests involve human samples and can help diagnose and treat patients.

9. IT

Interested in being the next Nam Do-san from Start-Up? Samsan Tech awaits after completing a degree in Information Technology. Students are trained to be IT professionals adept in software design and management. By the end of the course, individuals are expected to possess the necessary skills to develop programs to solve real-word problems.

10. Teacher Education

Teacher Education branches out into specialized areas like elementary and secondary education. The general scope among courses is to train students in both theory and practice to possess the skills needed to be a teacher.

The key to choosing a college course is to first find your niche. Knowing what you want is different from knowing how to do it well. But even if you’re new to the field, what matters most is that you show up everyday to be better. Here at Edukasyon, we want to be part of that journey, whether it be deciding on your course, collating your resume, or landing your first job.
