    Go back to school and get a degree that will allow you to actually make a living and contribute to society?

    Isn't this a question you are supposed to ask before you actually work towards a degree? Did you actually just spend 4+ years getting a degree that you weren't sure what to do with once you got it?!?

    Graduated last year with Soc/CrimJ and am in graduate school for School Counseling. My undergrad has made my graduate program much easier on me.

    Re: Soc degree

    You can tell a person's degree by the first question they ask on the job. Engineers will ask "How does that work?" Accountants will ask "How much does that cost?"

    Do you know what the first question a person with a Humanities degree will ask?
