Psycology & PreCal
I am a junior in high school and I'm pretty sure that I have an interest in psychology. I'm even taking intro to psych nect year to figure it out. But i also wonder if maybe i have an interest in psychiatry though that can wait because I dont know if I even have an interest in medicine also. Anyway, I was just wondering if precalculus is really necessary for pschology or psychiatry because either it is the teacher or the class itself is too hard for right now, but I don't feel like taking it anymore.
Pre-calc is probably not a requirement for most psychology degrees. Also, most medical schools don't have a math requirement, so having troubles in pre-calc isn't an automatic deal breaker. If you struggle in math in general, though, you may find some of the material in college difficult, especially in chemistry and physics. Additionally, you'll need to be good enough in math to handle some basic statistics.
There are a few medical schools that do have a math requirement, so you may want to see if a particular school in which you are interested does have any requirements.
Best of luck!
