Through internships, industry partnerships, experiential learning, undergrad research and study abroad opportunities, a 4-year degree provides lasting value. On an annual basis, bachelor’s degree holders earn about $32,000 more than those whose highest degree is a high school diploma, according to the Association for Public Land-Grant Universities. In addition, bachelor’s degree holders are half as likely to be unemployed as their peers who only have a high school degree and they make $1 million in additional earnings on average over their lifetime, according the APLU.
