4 Benefits of Getting a College Education

There are many great benefits to getting a college education outside of just higher earnings.

In addition to increasing earning potential, studies show that people who pursue a college education and training report being healthier and having more impact on their family and community than those with only a high school diploma.

Median Earnings Statistics

Workers with some college or an associate’s degree earn $825 weekly compared to $726 for high school graduates who never attended college. If you go on to earn your bachelor’s degree, that figure could increase more than 80% over those with only a high school diploma. Beckfield College offers programs ranging from diploma, associate degrees and bachelor degrees.
