Pursuing a career that one's parents choose

Q: My parents want me to pursue architecture. But, I want to be a psychologist or an Islamic scholar. I have little to no interest in architecture. Which is the better option to pick? My parents will not like it but will let choose my own career.

A: I suggest that you discuss this with your parents.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
