Why You Should Earn a Bachelor’s Degree

Posted November 8, 2017 | By csponline

Do You Know the Value of a Bachelor’s Degree?

Did you know that college graduates earn significantly more than those with high school diplomas? According to the Department of Education, adults with bachelor’s degrees took home almost $20,000 more than high school graduates in 2014. In addition, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the unemployment rate for college graduates was only 2.5 percent in 2017, half that of high school graduates.

There are many reasons to earn a bachelor’s degree that go beyond monetary rewards, however. College-educated adults report higher job satisfaction than those who don’t hold a college degree. And bachelor’s-level study can prepare you with relevant skills you can apply in the workplace for years to come. No matter what your specific career goals are, pursuing a bachelor’s degree is a smart way to get ahead.
