Graduate School Trends. Data Analysis. Tips. Interviews. Read our blog.
While the enrollment trouble at for-profit universities has been making all the news the past few years, graduate school enrollment has been on the decline at traditional non-profit universities, too. The numbers of Master’s degrees, but not doctorates, awarded in the past three years has been flat... It stands to reason that declining graduate school enrollment can be attributed largely to a reduction in Master’s program enrollment. Is this transient or have we seen peak Master’s degree? Here’s a bit more evidence from the government’s data vaults...
After a prolonged period of rising enrollments, the tide seems to have turned. After peaking in 2011 both undergraduate and graduate enrollment are on the decline. This is not a waning demographic bubble. Something else is going on... It appears to work something like this: During recessions, state legislatures withdraw subsidies for higher education, presumably because state tax revenues are down... I call this trend the “privatization” of public universities. Simply, as state support erodes the cost and behavior of public universities is more and more like that of private universities.

Based on our experience recruiting graduate and undergraduate students, and working way too hard to find the right graduate programs, we created Gradschoolmatch to make advanced degree recruiting a two-way conversation.
