There's some exciting news for higher education across our state. More people seem to be getting a better education in the health field.

The state's higher education policy commission said nearly 2,000 health-related degrees were awarded last year.

That's not only more than any other college degree, but it's also nearly a 25% increase from 2008.

Education ranked second with about 1,700 students, which actually decreased by about 10%.

At the bottom of the list were Bachelor of Art degrees, with just under 1,000 students.
