If you get a PhD in Sociology or Social Work you can't really expect to be successful.
If you are willing to study that many years for such a sh*tty degree, you might as well try Medical School.




what makes it a sh*tty degree?


a degree that has a lower chance of jobs with a high paying position (100k+ yearly).

And it also matters from where you got the degree, therefore, grades are important too.

But you could absolutely be successful with a Ph.D. in Social Work if you have the ambition to do so. It's...strange...to say that someone who doesn't have a degree could be successful but a person with an advanced degree could not. It all depends on the person.

And a DSW or Ph.D. in Sociology aren't easier than a J.D. No Ph.D. is easy. Both paths are very research-driven and require a strong technical element. I don't know much about DSW careers but sociologists are always useful at marketing firms, in government, policy think tanks, lobbying groups, etc. It's a matter of how you make use of your degree more than anything else.

@sexyandfamous - so you think that social workers really wanted to be lawyers and doctors but chose that field because it was easier?

and they have to "settle" for being social workers? wow! what a slap in the face and total disrespect to those fields.

I think a lot of the blacks that enter into social fields are afraid of math and science.

I also tend to notice those who discredit degrees the most consequently lack them. TBH, I was one of them before I invested the time an effort into getting them myself.

We are able to provide for our family just fine.. I have been saying for years i do want to go back and finish though. 2 of my friends pay alot for student loans i was shocked when they told me about $800 mth
