A study released on Tuesday by two researchers with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York concludes the opposite is true: The value of a bachelor’s degree is near an all-time high.
The researchers, Jaison R. Abel and Richard Deitz, found that despite some “alarming trends,” a bachelor’s degree for a 2013 graduate was worth $272,693, on average, and when adjusted for inflation, the value of a degree has hovered around $300,000 for more than a decade.
