4 Degrees That Are Better to Earn at a Community College
A college degree is a clear advantage in a competitive job market, but a bachelor's degree isn't the only ticket to a good living.
Careers in fields such as health care, manufacturing and information technology offer median earnings of up to $55,000 or more for graduates with an associate degree, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
And, in some cases, a two-year degree or technical certificate can offer students a better return on investment than a four-year degree.
When it comes to earning big without spending big on college, it pays to go with specialized or technical degrees, experts say. Here are four degrees that fit the bill, and may offer graduates a better return than a bachelor's.
1. Engineering technology
2. Radiation technology and medical imaging
3. Plumbing and heating
4. Dental hygiene
