To find scholarly articles on the benefits of higher education, link to the articles page of our Education LibGuide. Here you will find several sources of information. Click on Academic Search Complete, the first in the list. Log in using your student ID number and your Brenau user name.
Search "college education" AND benefits. Use the quotation marks; they'll help to focus your search. Use the left side tool bar on the results page to narrow to full text, with a publication date in the last 5 years. Then, under Source Type, choose Academic Journals.
This will return a number of good articles including
- Abel, J. R., & Deitz, R. (2014). Do the benefits of college still outweigh the costs? Current Issues In Economics & Finance, 20(3), 1-12. Retrieved from https://www.newyorkfed.org/research/current_issues
- Rose, S. (2013). The value of a college degree. Change, 45(6), 24-33. doi:10.1080/00091383.2013.842101
Good luck - it will be a good paper, I'm sure!
