38% decrease in unemployment rate with a bachelor's degree

People today are earning bachelor’s degrees at increasing rates. The U.S. Census Bureau notes that the between 2010 and 2019, the percentage of adults age 25 and older who had completed a bachelor's degree or higher increased from 29.9% to 36%.1

As organizations increasingly demand qualified candidates, job seekers have turned to higher education to outshine the competition. A bachelor’s degree can help you get your foot in the door and be strongly considered for your dream position; the skills you acquire in your program are what can help you secure the job offer.

1. Increase your earnings

Earning your bachelor’s degree can make financial sense. Comparing median weekly earnings, a bachelor’s degree could bump up your paycheck by 67% – an amount that makes your undergraduate program a smart investment beyond a high school diploma. Even when compared to an associate degree, median weekly earnings increase 40% for bachelor’s degree holders.2

When Janna Goraya ’17 earned her bachelor’s in accounting from DSU, her paycheck jumped: “I am now in a job I love, have doubled my salary from where I was when I started this journey and have a sense of accomplishment I haven’t felt in a long time.” Her next goal? An even higher-paying chief financial officer position.

2. Reach your goals

Not only does higher education make sense in regards to your finances, but a bachelor’s degree can also lead to more career opportunities and personal fulfillment. For Stacy Fuller ’17, her bachelor’s in health information management from DSU meant increased responsibility: “This degree helped me obtain this job, and my job duties have grown double since I started at the hospital full time.”

3. Decrease likelihood of unemployment

A bachelor’s degree doesn’t just improve your chances for a healthier salary. The unemployment rate also decreases for graduates - by 38% when compared to those with a high school diploma.2

Justin Perry ’17 knows that earning a bachelor’s degree is an accomplishment he can always fall back on. “I work every day at becoming better at what I do and getting closer to my goals,” he said about his BA in Communication from DSU. “Having a degree was always part of the plan, though; I realized that no matter what my circumstance is, I could always improve it through the use of education.”

If you're unsure of which program would be the best fit for you, request information and talk to an advisor about it.
