Academic Benefits

Here's why you should get a degree

There are many benefits to be derived from attaining a Bachelor's degree. Research has shown that holders of a degree tend to earn more than those who don't have a degree. In fact, a study done by the US Census Bureau showed that persons with a degree earns an average of 43 percent more than someone without one over the course of a lifetime. The Big Payoff: Educational Attainment and Synthetic Estimates of Work-Life Earnings.

In addition to the obvious financial benefits of earning a degree, there are also non-monetary benefits to degree holders. Degree holders tend to hold higher quality jobs leading to a career rather than less fulfilling positions. The children of degree holders also benefit from their parents' academic achievement from greater parental involvement in their education. Overall graduates, tend to be a source of innovation and contribute to economic growth.
