sociologyinthepast Posted September 10, 2012 Share Posted September 10, 2012 Hi folks, So, I just finished my MA at a top-5 program in my field (sociology). Now, this place doesn't have terminal sociology MAs - I actually left my PhD program after 2 years, having completed all the coursework and exams. I mostly left for personal reasons. I still want an academic career track, but I'd rather be in the northeast with my family and partner than the midwest. After a little soul searching, I've decided to reapply in the fall. I will still be in soc, but I don't think I'll necessarily want to keep my research interests entirely. Has anyone gone through a similar experience? I'm wondering if an MA from a highly ranked program is an asset, or, on the other hand, if having left a PhD program makes me look like a liability. Thanks all!
