I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, but does anyone know how good prospects are for Ph.Ds in Planning or Geography? I've come to a realization that I would probably be happiest Teaching/researching at the university level (and I can't do any worse than my professors), but of course, I don't want to put in the time for something that likely won't pan out.
I keep reading things about how humanities PhDs are wastes of time, but nothing much about social sciences. I see postings for professors constantly (but of course, I have no idea how many applicants these postings draw). Also, most Ph.d Programs are small and many schools are expanding (or creating) programs.
