The time of choosing a right career path for oneself is the most critical phase of a student’s life as it serves as the locus of one's future life. The life of a student entirely depends upon his/her choice of career. The sole decision of choosing a career path is enough to make or ruin a student’s life. A student should take the decision of choosing the right career for himself/herself with proper care.

The career decision should be taken after a proper analysis of available career options, a proper understanding of one's own interests and passions, the similar types of courses which match the interests of the student, and the future prospects and scope of the chosen field. If a student takes the decision of choosing his/her career field in a hurry and without any analysis, then he/she may end up taking a wrong career path.

It is often said that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life' because life is not just about earning money. It is about living every moment to its fullest. One should not kill his/her dreams by choosing the wrong career path. For avoiding choosing the wrong career path, a student must first look into his/her own self and try to discover his/her inner desires, passions, interests and hidden talents. Then after a complete analysis and a thorough understanding of one’s own self, he/she should decide his career path accordingly.

Students often come across a stage of utmost confusion while choosing one's career and end up taking a wrong career in a hurry. Students who take their career decision in a hurry often suffer from severe health and mental issues like, tension, frustration anxiety, and depression. Wrong career decision makes their life monotonous and troublesome. So, out of frustration from life, they even adapt nasty habits including addiction. Some even end up committing suicide. This all happens just due to a wrong decision, hurry in decision making and negligence.

Students often fail to understand that whether they should go for a regular course or a professional course. To help the students in choosing the right career for them, we will discuss the differences between regular courses and professional courses in this article as this question puzzles a lot of students.

Regular Courses

Regular courses are the simple graduation courses. These courses are very popular and demanded courses of all times. Regular courses are available for students of every field, including Humanities, Commerce, and Science. These are the simple BA, B.Com and B.Sc courses which can be pursued generally by anyone. Students often opt to choose for these courses because they are considerably cheap. Moreover, students also choose to pursue these courses because they find them convenient. Students find these courses convenient because they do not require long hours of study. They are usually considered to be easy courses which can be passed by any average students. That’s why students who want to pursue a course just for the mere sake of getting a graduation degree opt fir these courses. But the scope of these courses are limited and they do not offer any wide future prospects. The value of these courses is considered to be very low without any masters degree. So, the students who pursue these courses are required to go for masters in order to raise their market worth.


Professional Courses

Professional courses are the courses which allow students to do specialization in a particular field. These courses are centered around their specific field. Professional courses have become very popular and high-in-demand these days. This is because, with the rapidly developing fast-paced world, one needs highly professional courses to become successful. Professional courses are the courses which bring out the best of students by expanding their mental horizon. Moreover, professional courses aim at developing the skills which a person needs in order to be able to work in a specific industry or a job.

Professional courses help students to discover their hidden skills and talents. Professional courses make students highly efficient and enable them to achieve greater competence in their field and improve their prospects for progress. Professional courses are costlier than the regular courses. That’s why some students choose to pursue regular courses in place of professional courses as they cannot afford them. Moreover, professional courses require more time and energy of a student as they are having a detailed course structure which requires a thorough study and analysis.
