Where graduate enrollments are booming

From The Chronicle of Higher Education: “Federal data show that much of the growth in graduate enrollments came from unlikely sources. It wasn’t from the doctoral institutions often considered to be the bedrock of graduate studies. … A Chronicle analysis of preliminary enrollment data from the U.S. Department of Education shows that graduate enrollment at baccalaureate colleges nationwide was up nearly 10 percent in fall 2020, from a year earlier. Master’s colleges saw an increase of 7.6 percent in their graduate enrollments. And at colleges where at least 75 percent of graduate students were enrolled exclusively online, graduate enrollment was up 9.6 percent. Meanwhile graduate attendance at doctoral institutions fell 0.8 percent in fall 2020.”
