Average Wages for Individuals with a Bachelor’s Degree
It is difficult to predict a bachelor degree graduate’s salary. Salaries will depend on the job position, employee’s years of experience, and discipline of the bachelor’s degree.
Varying with the degree, holders of bachelor’s degrees can expect to earn an average annual wage ranging between $34,000 and about $100,000.
