what are some good college fields for girls to look into? which professions are well paying and not too hard of schooling?
go for something you enjoy, because if your going to end up dreading going to work everyday, its not worth any amount of money!!
Engineering and accounting lead to decent jobs with just a Bachelor’s degree.
Having a degree in a field with strong demand gives you a lot of leverage when Shabbos / Yom Tov issues come up.
There are NO nursing jobs in hospitals, so unless you are willing to do home care or work in an office DONT go into nursing.

Real answer? Plumbing.
Accounting is a great profession for a Jewish woman because there are often many per diem jobs around and that’s good if you only want to work 2-3 days a week. Special education is also a very good and rewarding career, helping young children grow. Architect is also a great position and career with per diem work available.
Do what you really want. You absolutely can not rely on the job market being 30 years ago what it is today.
And don’t forget to put Torah first. It also is not a bad idea to postpone college until you are sufficiently mature to appreciate it — especially as hard work really does pay off.
Josh31, accounting is a good choice but I believe you now need a masters degree.
per diem or part time accounting only works after someone has a good few years of solid experience. You would need to expect to have to work full time for 5-8 years a minimum in order to be able to try and get such a position.
You need 150 credits – not necessarily a MS.
I hate to break it to you, but anything well-paying is going to be “hard of schooling”. Now, if you do something that is enjoyable to you, it won’t matter how hard the work is.
