What should I get my Bachelor’s in?

Hello all!
I’m currently a full time clinical RDH for 2 years. I’m looking to get my bachelors’ but am very conflicted in what to get it in exactly. I’m not too sure what I want to do because I love being a clinical RDH, but just thinking ahead for the future! Note I can only do all online!
BSDH – I’ve only found programs where you need to do student teaching programs, and not too sure my schedule allows me to do that. I’m also not sure if I want to get it in something so specific.
Public Health- I’ve heard many good things about it but unsure what I can do with that? I know RDHs going for their degree through Southern New Hampshire.
Marketing/research – what major is that?
PLEASE if any of you have other ideas for bachelors programs/majors please feel free to list and describe why you chose that!

Choosing what major to further your degree in is hard! The choice really depends on your strengths and interests on a personal level. Only you know that! If you wanted to work in a public health clinic or be apart or run public health programs in your community, then public health could be an option. If you want to teach dental hygiene, a major in dental hygiene or education is another option. If you love the science behind prevention and the microbiology behind it, then biology or microbiology is an option. If you can see yourself working for a dental company/manufacturer than marketing is an option. The possibilities are endless. Again, it comes down to what you can see yourself doing if you do move beyond clinical hygiene and where your interests lie.
It might be helpful if you sat down with or reached out to an education counselor (at a college) to help you narrow your possibilities. You can even reach out to a dental hygiene program director to help with your choice.
I wish you the best of luck on furthering your education!
