Most of you have probably seen this chart floating around on facebook or elsewhere. It was recently released by a site called Online-PhD-Programs. When my husband forwarded it to me, I sat in shock reading through it. I don’t know if I’d classify it as a full on crisis…but there is certainly a lot of work to be done in the US to change this sad and strange situation.
The stats are mind-boggling, not to mention depressing. What do you make of it? I’m not sure how accurate they are. Do you think this is really the case in most areas of PhDs? Have you encountered this in your own ‘beyond grad school’ search? Any insights or thoughts to share?
