Graduating from college is one of the biggest achievements of your life. Once you have your degree, what's next? A challenging career? An advanced degree? Law or medical school? Whatever decision you make, the degree you earn from NC State University will prepare you for what's next-your life.

NC State degrees get jobs

The degree you earn at NC State is valuable-and not just to you and your family. Your degree is also valuable to employers. It tells them that you are undoubtedly intelligent and driven, but that you're a big-picture thinker, eager to make a difference in the world around you.

Employers also know you leave NC State prepared to hit the ground running, ready to contribute to their goals. But don't take our word for it. Look to the success of our recent graduates. It's proof of the value of an NC State degree.
