“Students are seeking advanced degrees as a means of increasing their competitiveness in this job market,” said Tonda Highley, associate dean of student advising in the Advising and Fieldwork Center. “By pursuing an advanced degree in a field that they want to go into, they can increase their skill-sets and knowledge base so they can compete better in the job market.”
