Same here..

Bachelor's and Master's in Molecular Biology, MBA and currently working on my medical degree (called MBBS here, I think its MD in the US/North America). Hoping to finally get a job when I'm done in about 1 and a half years because all my other degrees have proven to be useless when it comes to getting a decent job.

lol, I get this question a lot. My life plan has varied over the years, but the 2 constants have been commissioning in the military (degree required) and going in the airlines (degree required.) For both, no specific degree was required. I went to NGCSU and the degree that interested me the most was Criminal Justice. Now that I'm going in full time soon, I decided to pursue my degree online. Since I had many more choices online, I decided to go aviation for my Masters just to try that out--getting a BS and MS in CJ is redundant according to my CJ teachers. I'm only going for my Masters in the event I want to stay in the military longer (you need a Masters to get promoted to O-4 or O-5, I forget which.)

Can't answer your direct question with complete accuracy, but for law enforcement, many work up the totem pole. I'll say "many" a lot, but keep in mind there are exceptions everywhere. You start out at a local agency, work up experience to get a state position, then work longer to go federal. Degrees are often essential to these offerings, but I don't know if FAMs need Bachelors. Getting the 2 degrees I am getting would probably land a FAM position a lot more quickly than someone without these 2 degrees, but the time and effort it takes to get the 2 degrees is probably overkill. Just my limited opinion though  

Anyone here have a PhD? I am thinking about pursuing that just for the sake of educating myself. I think education is very important, even though a PhD wouldn't do me any good (as I have no desire to pursue anything beyond airline pilot.) I was thinking about Embry-Riddle's PhD in aviation, supposedly the first and only PhD in aviation. I'd be a true a.net nerd

I am a PhD program dropout, if that counts for anything. Wrong time to do the degree, not in the right mindset, not in the right place in life, not in the right program. I decided halfway through my second semester that I wanted out, buy still lingered on for another year because I was doing a job search from the other side of the country.


A PhD isn't something that you go into for funsies. There is a level of intensity and commitment that is involved that isn't like anything else you've done academically. You really have to have a specific goal in mind for that degree or else it isn't going to happen.

A PhD in aviation??? I mean this with all due respect, but WTH does that degree even cover and then what do you do with it?

During the 'good years' O-3 to O-4, an M.A. was not required, but highly recommended; from O-4 to O-5 it was not "required", but in excess of 90% of O-5s had a MA+. It also depends on MOS, etc... Medical Service Corps, for example, requires an "AMEDD approved MA" to move from O-3 to O-4, Quartermasters tend to either start or get their MBAs as O-3s.

I got my BA in International Studies (International affairs), and I am in my final semester of graduate school, working on an MA in Political Science (International Relations & U.S. Domestic Policy). Worry not though, after seven years of post secondary education (with 1 science and 1 math class), the Army sees fit to send me to school for another year... to fly learn to fly Blackhawks. Who-woulda-thunk.

Law enforcement is something I'd do if the military and aviation don't work out. I'm thinking about doing reserve policing later in life, just to get a taste of it.

It's more than just for fun, I feel like I need to do something great in life. My dad came from nothing and ended up where he is at, I feel I need to do something. I want to pursue a very high level of education and learn a foreign language (which is kind of a feat in America even if it's almost essential for living in other countries.)

Quoting desertjets (Reply 18):

I would do that just because I love aviation and do not feel like starting over from square one with something like physics. Here is the page: http://aviationphd.erau.edu/ I do not downplay the commitment and realize it will probably be my undoing. I hate writing papers of any length, so a dissertation would be horrendous for me.

I have lots of family members that have gone through Army aviation via West Point, ROTC, and by working through the enlisted ranks. If you ever need someone to talk to just let me know. Best of luck.

Working as a caregiver, but I really want to (sooner as opposed to later) want to work as an urban planner. With all the education I have, you'd think I should be getting interviews left and right. Unfortunately, I get more REJECTIONS left and right; no offer to come in for an interview... It's as if my advanced education doesn't matter...

Even the job openings in my field are senior-level this, executive-level that, director of such-n-such department. My credit is probably headed for the basement because I'm having a hard time paying off my loans while making only $20k a year. I tried to sign up for some kind of federal assistance with the job search, but they only want to give me a grant for more schooling. What the hell else could I go to school for?

You dont really need to go Local-State-Fed most are Local or State to Fed or Military to Fed. But there are a lot of Special Agents that had no prior Law Enforcement jobs. Places like the FBI, DEA, ATF need agents with special skills and graduate degrees etc.. There are many agents with law degrees out there or science or language based degrees. However the majority come from a local/state agency or the military. But not a overwhelming majority.

I dont think they do, I am pretty sure they are not 1811 "Special Agents" but any special agent job, USSS, DEA, FBI, ATF, Inspector General at any government agency needs a 4 year degree.

Best of luck! The problem is there are a lot of people out there who have already worked the jobs since they do not have any jobs either. Being a geography degree holder myself it is an expanding field though. There are jobs out there.

Quoting DeltaMD90 (Reply 21):


The DEA has pretty large fleet of aircraft from Helicopters to Cessnas, King Airs and Lears. All of their pilots are actual Agents so they are not just pilots. You have to work 2 years as an agent and if you have say a commercial certificate and some decent hours can apply to be a DEA pilot. One of the cooler jobs out there I think. Always keeping that option in my back pocket but Fed LEO jobs are very very competitive.
