CNBC reports that many STEM majors, despite their generally higher pay, regret their choice of field.

Nature survey reports that PhD students' experiences can be frustrating, but also satisfying.

A proposed rule would deem graduate students at private institutions to not be employees, which ScienceInsider reports might affect unionization efforts.
