What is a good university major/career if you're bad at math and science?

Well my career path is Public Policy & Administration... And if you've got the French, you're more than likely to get a job in the government, especially if you choose to go to a university in Ottawa, then you get the coop option and then you can network your way into your job. :)
Other than that, business/accounting may be good too.

It all depends on who you are, what are your strengths/ interests if you don't like math/ science? It doesn't have to be school related, could be something like networking, public speaking etc.

I would look at programs under the arts faculty in universities. Could be something like political science, social work, humanities, journalism, business etc. You could possibly look at a career as a teacher?

Also, don't try to look for programs that involve no math/ science what so ever. It might be possible to avoid science but practically impossible to avoid math. Maybe you should give math/ science another chance? If you're not in your senior years I would say that it gets a lot more interesting later on and likely even more so in university.

Business is the obvious answer. Most degrees don't require more than first-year math.

I think your best bet otherwise would be to get a degree in a language (not something like Italian, but like Arabic or Mandarin) and learn it fluently by studying abroad. Then you could be a translator or interpreter.

Anything Arts.
or Business.
Maybe even something environmentally related.
