That's similar to the boat I'm in. I do make pretty good money at my current job, and will probably make less in the field I'll be entering.

I've had a bit of an existential crisis and decided that I would prefer a job that leaves me feeling fulfilled instead of just working for a paycheck.

How much school do you have left?

I'm about to be in my senior year (it's taking forever) and this semester has been one of the best yet. All three of my classes tie into one another and they're all really interesting. Great professors too.

I have about 60 credits and an Associate's Degree. I'll be majoring in Sociology, which means I'm most likely going to require a post-grad degree to get any real jobs in that field. My main goal would be to do something in Social Research that could affect government policy.

I'm taking a sociology class now (requirement). Interesting learning.

Sounds like a worth while endeavor my friend.

I'm lucky enough to be able to work for myself. Didn't want to "go postal" in today's 9 to 5 work environment.

It is really interesting stuff. My wife is switching from Psychology (which she earned her Bachelor's) to Sociology for her Masters. Her thesis will have something to do with improving retention of non-traditional students (minorities, students from low-income families, and handicapped students). She's already read a ton of existing research and is trying to come up with a question that hasn't yet been asked.

I'm mainly interested in somehow measuring the amount of empathy in a given society and how it affects things like public funding of social programs, income inequality, etc.

Here's a great Ted Talk by a Sociology professor at PSU on empathy:

I view Sociology vs. Psychology as similar to Macroeconomics vs. Microeconomics.

I'm studying this stuff right now actually and they are teaching all of those things to future teachers. "Students with exceptionalities." But socioeconomic status and social development/experience is a huge factor.
