The Earning Power of Graduates from Tennessee's Colleges and Universities
How Are Graduates from Different Degree Programs Doing in the Labor Market?
This report, the result of a partnership between the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC) and College Measures, draws upon previously not publicly available data to compare the average first-year earnings of recent graduates from two-year and four-year institutions across Tennessee. With this dataset on first-year earnings, the authors explore the variation in earnings for graduates from individual degree programs at individual colleges. The results show that the degrees students earn, and where they earn them, matter.
