I am so undecided?
I would highly recommend visiting your career center on campus. They can help you decide what major to select and help you explore different career paths. There are plenty of career assessments out there the advisors can have you take, and then you’ll spend some time interpreting them.
In the meantime, do a self-assessment. Figure out what you like to do and what skills you think you’re strong with. Begin matching your strengths with careers that are out there. With a little exploration, you’ll begin to focus on what you want to do. Talk to faculty, talk to other students and if you can, talk to alumni of your school. I’m sure your career center can help you connect. Good luck!
Criminal justice sounds great if you’d like to work in a lawyer’s office, or if you’d like to be a cop or detective.
Both of your choices involve helping people. And you have a soft spot for kids. Open up your options to include jobs that serve people/kids without ever hurting them as part of your job.
First of all, unless you plan on going into a specialized field (medicine, law, etc) you dont really need to worry about what you study (at the undergrad level.) If you have any interest in it, look into it. Dont worry about whether it is considered ‘practical.’
Try taking a course that allows you to explore your interests and abilities (these are often offered at both high schools and colleges.) Also evaluate what it is you enjoy doing now.
Most importantly, research your possible majors as thoroughly as you can.

There are plenty of resources available for research.
Most importantly: RELAX! I know it all seems overwhelming now, but you’ll be fine. Just breathe.
criminal justice i had a friend who did this and she works for the FBI doing research and assisting with cases that they are working on. if you pursue law you don’t have to be a trial lawyer you can go into contracts and acquisitions, family law, business law or malpractice or civil.
my suggestion would be to think about what you like to do and find an area that can help you do that for the rest of you life.
me i’m a health person so i majored in health management and am now applying to med school. pick a general thing you like fine tune it in grad school. that’s what i did and it’s working for me.
