3 Reasons to Earn a Degree
There are many reasons people enroll in online degree programs. For some it’s career advancement, for others it’s the hope of increased earning potential or it may be the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. Whatever your personal reason for pursuing higher education online, we're here to help.
If you've been on the fence about pursuing a degree online, here are three reasons why furthering your education with a degree can be a great idea.
1. New Career Opportunities
Graduates of degree programs can benefit from more career opportunities. Many jobs require at least a bachelor’s degree to be considered. Earning a college degree can help open many doors that may otherwise be closed.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics3:
- Those with a bachelor's degree earn, on average, 60% more per week than those with only a high school diploma.
- Graduates with a master’s degree earn nearly double the weekly amount of high school grads.
2. Less Likely to be Unemployed
Earning a college degree can help you weather the storm when times get tough. For example, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate was 5.5% for college graduates with a bachelor's, and 9% for high school graduates in 2020.4
3. Personal Fulfillment
Last but not least, earning a college degree can fulfill a personal passion and lifelong dream for many people. A bachelor’s degree is an accomplishment that, in 2016, only 33% of Americans could claim5. It can be a source of great pride and satisfaction for graduates and their families, especially for families who are first generation college students.
FAQs: On-Campus and Online Degree Programs
Are online degrees accredited?
Absolutely! Many online degree programs are accredited.
DeVry University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission (HLC), www.hlcommission.org. HLC is a national agency that accredits U.S. colleges and universities at the institutional level and is recognized by both the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Accreditation provides assurance to the public and to prospective students that standards of quality have been met.
What are the four types of degrees?
The four types of degrees that are typically offered by both online and in-person institutions of higher learning include associate, bachelor’s, master's and doctoral degrees.
An associate degree is the first level among college degree programs and can help prepare students for entry-level positions in a variety of fields. An associate degree usually takes approximately two years to complete, but can require less time with qualifying transfer credits or a year-round study plan. DeVry offers associate degree programs in technology, business and healthcare and some programs can be completed in as little as 1 year and 4 months.6
A bachelor's degree is the next step up in college degree programs. Typically known as a four-year program, a bachelor’s degree is an undergraduate degree that can help prepare graduates for either entry-level or more advanced employment, depending on your industry. Generally, a bachelor's degree is required to pursue a graduate degree program, such as a master’s degree. At DeVry, we offer bachelor’s degree programs in the fields of technology, business, accounting, healthcare, liberal arts and media arts and some programs can be completed in as little as 2 years and 8 months6. Within each of these fields, we offer several specializations designed to help you gain the necessary skills to pursue specific career paths.
A master's degree is a type of graduate degree program that typically requires a student to focus on a specific area of study. Generally, a master’s degree program takes one to two years to graduate. Some master's degree programs include a thesis or capstone project that students must complete in order to graduate. A master's degree can help prepare graduates for more advanced or executive-level career paths. DeVry offers master’s degree programs in technology, business, accounting and healthcare.
A doctoral degree represents the highest level of degree program achievement and is often referred to as a “terminal degree.” Typically, a doctoral degree program builds upon a master’s degree program and requires a master’s degree for a student to be admitted. A doctoral degree program can take several years to complete and can include a dissertation or major research project. Graduates of doctoral degree programs are often considered experts in their fields. Currently, DeVry does not offer doctoral degree programs.
Are online degree programs worth it?
Investing in online degree programs may be very worthwhile. Not only do online degrees offer increased convenience and flexibility for busy students, but earning a college degree can pay off in terms of expanded career opportunities.3
What are the best online college degrees?
The best online college degree is the one that most closely aligns with your career passions and aspirations. While that differs for each of us, at DeVry, some of our more popular online degree programs include Medical Billing and Coding, Business and Management, and Information Technology and Networking.
When considering an online degree program, it may help to do some research into how a school handles online learning. You should also look into how long a school has offered online learning options as an indicator of how well-equipped they may be to support your needs. DeVry University was a pioneer in the realm online higher education, and we have decades of experience helping students reach their goals.
Are there online classes or hybrid classes available for me to take?
At Devry, we offer both hybrid and online classes. This way you can choose which option works better for you. Our hybrid programs give you the opportunity to have face-to-face time for certain classes and also offer the benefit of taking online classes. Or, if you choose to, you can also take our programs 100% online. Certain DeVry programs require students to successfully complete practicum or clinical coursework at an affiliated healthcare site.
How long does it take to get an online bachelor's degree?
Getting a bachelor's degree online takes roughly the same amount of time as obtaining one through in-person courses. Depending on the focus of your degree, the intensity of your course load and the amount of qualifying transfer credits you already have, the length of the program may be reduced. At DeVry some bachelor's degree programs can be completed online in as little as 2 years and 8 months6
Can you earn an entire degree at DeVry by taking only online classes?
Yes, DeVry has been offering fully online degree programs and classes for more than 20 years.

We have a fairly quick process when it comes to reviewing your incoming credits. You can expect to have them evaluated in as little as two to three days.
Will I earn a college diploma?

A diploma earned through online learning is identical to one earned through in-person programs. The document you receive does not differ from that of an in-person student.
