About the Webconference

Employment prospects remain dim for recent college graduates, with over a third of college-educated young adults working part-time or in jobs that don’t require a college degree.

Rather than continue their undergraduate studies in a related master’s programs, many young adults are opting to pursue a second bachelor’s degree in high-demand STEM fields. Second bachelor’s degrees condense core undergraduate major courses into a single intensive program, significantly improving the job prospects and earning potential of participants.

This webconference examines the pervasive underemployment of college graduates and profiles several universities with highly successful second bachelor’s degree programs in computer science.
