In today’s economy, you need a bachelor’s degree just to get your foot in the door. But the benefits of a college degree go well beyond qualifying for a job. Research shows earning a college degree increases people’s happiness, average salary and overall health.
For instance, workers with a bachelor’s degree earn an average of $461 more a week than workers with a high school diploma, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. College grads are also less likely to be unemployed – 2.5% compared to 4.6% of diploma holders in 2018. College graduates make up 75% of homebuyers, according to a 2016 report by Zillo.
Whether you’re looking for more fulfillment, to plan a better future or to provide for your family, a college degree can help you get the most out of your life.
