alumni testimonial Jewel M

"Once you get in it, it just becomes a part of who you are. It doesn't really change too much from degree to degree... It's really just doing the same thing that you're already doing, but you’re continuing to further your education."

Jewel M.
Rasmussen University Graduate

It Pays to Continue Your Education

In general, the higher the degree, the higher the wage. Makes sense, right? Don’t take our word for it—the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) charted the median usual weekly earnings and unemployment rate by degree level.3 Not only does the median pay increase, but the unemployment rate also decreases as the degree level climbs.4
