Walsh, E. Michael; Reynolds, R. John
A follow-up study of the first two graduating classes (1974 and 1975) of the School of Technical Careers (STC) Baccalaureate Program was conducted. Questionnaires were sent to eighty-seven graduates (of ninety) who had United States addresses on file. Questions pertained to current labor market status, current occupation, first job after graduation, and evaluation of the STC Baccalaureate Program. Sixty-one graduates responded, and the results of the study include the following: (1) all STC graduates were either employed or in school, none were unemployed; (2) graduates were in jobs related to their majors; (3) graduates assessed their career potential as definite; (4) their earnings were comparable to other college graduates; and (5) STC graduates were satisfied with their occupational preparation.
