U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data indicates that holding a graduate degree can mean a higher salary and better job security. In 2010, median weekly earnings were $1,272 for workers who held a master’s degree, $1,610 for workers who held a professional degree, and $1,550 for those who held a doctoral degree. Compare that to $1,038 for bachelor’s degree holders and $626 for those with only a high school diploma. And while the average unemployment rate was 8.2% that year, it was just 4% for workers with master’s degrees and even less for those with doctorates.
