Nationally, student demand for Mental Health Programs is rising.  Last year, inquiries and Google searches for the program both rose over 12%, while program completions rose 10%.  Competition remains manageable in this field, with only 210 schools offering the program in the U.S. Among the competitors, distance education providers appear to be taking share; only 8% of schools offering this program are online, but they produce 25% of the graduates.  On the employment front, there were over 16,000 related job postings last year and 9% average annual growth in employment. Unfortunately, earnings are low; according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the 10th percentile wage is just $30,000 for a field in which over 45% of employees have a graduate degree.

Other fields where student demand fell in December included higher education programs in Advertising, Fashion-Merchandising, and Commercial Art.  We were surprised to see a drop in searches for Computer Programming degrees, which fell 21%. This is the only sign we have seen of falling interest in software programming education.
