With prices of higher education escalating to previously unforeseen heights, the decision of undergraduate concentrations and graduate degree enrollment has become more critical than ever. Job availability in the U.S., especially to recent graduates is dismal.
Are there alternatives available to traditional colleges and universities that will still lead to professional success? For those already enrolled in a degree program, what are ways the most value of that degree can be realized? For recent graduates, those of the Millenium/Generation-Y age, there may be more questions than answers at this point in time. Emerging changes should be viewed unavoidable, driven by the rising costs, changing demographic and political landscapes, and continual advances in technology.
