Yes, it is that time of the year again. Admission Season! There are so many options to choose from that it makes your head spin. When it comes to opting for a PG Course, the choice is a bit difficult. But what if you do not want to go down the traditional road? Yes, something other than the conventional engineering, medical and management courses.
Is it possible, you ask? It certainly is! Here is a list of offbeat PG Courses that you can opt for, and that will certainly not leave you jobless.
1. Yoga Therapy
Yoga is all the rage these days. And frankly, this is something that will never go out of “trend”. Practised since ages, yoga has found international recognition with a massive demand for yoga trainers. So much so that there is also an International Yoga Day celebrated now on June 21 every year. A PG course in Yoga Therapy is bound to boost your career aspects exponentially.
2. Interior Design
Move over fashion designing; interior design is a booming field in India currently. Many interior companies, especially startups, are coming up aiming to make our spaces greener, efficient and of course, beautiful. Armed with a degree in Interior Design, one can join such firms or even work as a freelancer decorating various spaces like homes, offices and even cafes!
3. Exercise & Sports Sciences
Love sports? Then a PG Course in Exercise & Sports Sciences is an excellent option for you. With the increasing attention being given to all sports and not just cricket, the scope for individuals trained in this field has sky-rocketed. This is an excellent choice for people who like to work in high-stress situations and love to hang out with their favourite sportspersons.
4. Forensic Science
If you’ve ever been a fan of shows like Criminal Minds and imagined yourself catching criminals, then a PG course in Forensic Science is your ticket out! With the advent of technology, the investigations in crimes have become more scientific, relying on a lot of forensic evidence. Working in this field is quite challenging but extraordinarily stimulating and challenging for the right individual.
Now, these courses may not sound as unconventional as a course on Harry Potter, but let’s face it- these PG courses are quite practical. There are two reasons for it. One, they are quite unconventional from regular PG courses. And two, despite being a little off-beat, they guarantee you a lifetime of work opportunities.
With so much competition in every field these days, it makes sense to opt for a course that is both practical and different because it makes you stand apart from the rest of the world. And that is what gives you an upper hand in today’s world of cut-throat competition.
