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?

@Beatrice, sure someone doing Social Work are thinking of helping people but a man with that degree won't really be able to provide for his family, and he might have to settle working as a social worker because too many people choose that career since it is "easier" than Law or Medical school.


College isn't everything if you don't do more than just go to college. I see that in the faces of money people studying with me. They have crappy grades because they are in college to please their parents or get some money from financial aid or because they simply think college is enough to achieve something. It is like they think that graduating from any college will open a million doors. The counselors at my college are supposed to have a masters in Psychology. They are complete morons, you cannot be helped by them. They clearly hate their job and couldn't care less about the students' needs, but hey, they got a degree hanging somewhere in their house.

If a man is talented and also has ambition, but his choice of career is to be a singer or actor, I see little use in going to college. If a man has ambition and knows how to network, and he wants to be a businessman and already has a business, college may help a bit, but everything is literally on him, so might as well save the money.

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.
