social work, sociology & science

The Social Sciences are regarded by some to be among the most overrated degree choices made by secondary school leavers. They forget to research the pros and cons prior to admission. Inspite of high unemployment rates and rather average starting salaries, many apply for admission even though the median starting salary is estimated at only $45K and 60% of graduates end up working in this field full time. More hereNon-Sociology subject areas here.
