Value of a Bachelor's Degree

February 26, 2015

value of a bachelor's degreeA recent article from Bloomberg Business confirms what we’ve always known — there is real value in earning a bachelor’s degree. In fact, the article explains that the biggest labor market problem for bachelor’s degree holders right now just might be that there aren’t enough of them to fill the open jobs.

The article notes that the unemployment rate for those with a bachelor’s degree is down to 2.8%, significantly lower than the 5.7% rate for the adult population as a whole. The unemployment rate for bachelor’s degree holders is the lowest it’s been since 2008, and the article explains that with this level, it is possible the job market may run out of bachelor’s holders to hire.

But a degree from Cedarville University does more than just prepare students for a spot in the marketplace. Our students are equipped for lifelong leadership and service through an education marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth. We prepare them to use their vocation to glorify God in all they do.


P.S. There is still time to apply for admission to Cedarville University. We continue to accept and review applications throughout the academic year. If your student has already been accepted, be sure to deposit now to secure his or her place in the fall class!

Choosing Cedarville: An Answer to Prayer

February 18, 2015

RousterToday’s ParentPrep blog post is written by guest contributors Gary and Carol Rouster. Gary and Carol are both 1984 Cedarville graduates who live in Jackson, Michigan. They share their experience of helping their son, Nathan, navigate his college choices and learning to let go and trust him into God’s hands.

"When it came time to start to look at colleges with our son, Nathan, our first choice was, of course, Cedarville University, our alma mater. However, our son had a different view. Being an only child, he grew up attending the same school where his Dad taught, so every day from kindergarten through 12th grade, he rode to school with Dad and everyone knew our son, because they knew his Dad...."
