Programs I just don't know what to study or major in

I'm a liberal arts major, and I can see that going no where fast. I love math and science, though I only have very basic knowledge of each. I grew up poor, and went to one of the lowest ranked school districts in my state so I wasn't really exposed to any of it.

I always thought I hated school but now I know it's bc the classrooms were like conflict zones with disruptive students and screaming teachers slamming things around. I've been an excellent student in college and enjoy studying.

When I realized I needed a new major, I incorrectly thought I would just get a masters in a stem major. Unfortunately I won't meet any pre reqs bc I took math and science for liberal arts.

I'm planning on starting over and taking the challenging stem classes I missed, but I still don't have a clear path of what to study or work towards.

Would engineering give me a strong base to do whatever I want after?

The three things I really want -
is a needed professional career with excellent opportunity (little competition, job security)
To start working in the next few years then continue my education as I work
I'm on the design and planning side. I have ADD and procedural / rote memory tasks have a severe negative effect on my mental health.

Thank you for any replies, I really appreciate any advice.
