Philosophy programs are under attack from all sides, but is it justified?  In this month’s webcast, Gray took a deeper dive to determine if the negative perception was justified.  What we found was somewhat surprising, students are showing interest in the program and the cost is not prohibitive.  But will students be able to find jobs when they graduate?  Watch our analysis below.

What’s Up?  Mental Health Counseling Programs Receive High Scores.

Posted by Jeff Chin on Feb 14, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Nationally, student demand for Mental Health Programs is rising.  Last year, inquiries and Google searches for the program both rose over 12%, while program completions rose 10%.  Competition remains manageable in this field, with only 210 schools offering the program in the U.S. Among the competitors, distance education providers appear to be taking share; only 8% of schools offering this program are online, but they produce 25% of the graduates.  On the employment front, there were over 16,000 related job postings last year and 9% average annual growth in employment. Unfortunately, earnings are low; according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the 10th percentile wage is just $30,000 for a field in which over 45% of employees have a graduate degree.

What’s Up?  NOT Google Searches for Education and Teaching Programs, which dropped over 10% in December.

Posted by Jeff Chin on Feb 12, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Google searches fell over 10% for two education degrees and two science programs. Other fields where student demand fell in December included higher education programs in Advertising, Fashion-Merchandising, and Commercial Art.  We were surprised to see a drop in searches for Computer Programming degrees, which fell 21%. This is the only sign we have seen of falling interest in software programming education.
