Topics: Undertanding Student demand
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.
