    I knew a philosophy major who said that the getting that degree was a path to unhappiness!
    I know one who believes it was the best thing she ever did.

    It depends on what you're interested in... different people get different sort of experiences so it's hard to judge based on their accounts. But I think it's fair to say you're not likely to find a job that is directly related to what you study in psych, sociology or philosophy unless you go into academia.

    Once again thank you for your response. The societal thing sounds interesting, but not so much the government/politics. What sort of questions do you work with in sociology? [I need to get a book, but am short on time...]
    Sociology really covers all aspects of society and social life, not just society as organized by governments. If you're not interested in government/politics, then there are still plenty of other topics you can study within sociology - though it depends on what courses your university offers. Just using my university as an example there are sociology courses focusing on gender, ethnicity, intimate realtionships, family, aging, the media, the arts, religion, the military, education, personality/identity, and many other topics in addition to politics. Sociology is such a broad field that you should definitely be able to find some topics of interest. Or if you think you might be more interested in studying how cultures vary across societies, then cultural anthropology might be a good choice for you.
