Do I need a degree?

A recent study by researchers in USC's Darla Moore School of Business shows that bachelor's degrees provide a lifetime of better earnings for individuals and communities. South Carolina residents with bachelors' degrees earn an average of $15,000 more per year than high school graduates.
