Associate's Degrees

A destination... or a stop along the way?

The benefits of earning an associate degree can include higher earning potential, better job security, as well as increased opportunity and vocational advancement. According to the United States Bureau and Labor and Statistics, people with associate degrees have better prospects for employment and earnings than those who have taken some college courses but haven’t received a degree.

Associate degrees are considered 2-year degrees though some students move faster or slower depending on what else is going on in their lives and how much time they want to devote to schoolwork. Generally, associate degrees require 60 credits of coursework, which translates to 20 college courses. That’s half the academic requirements of a bachelor’s degree.

With the two-year degree under your belt, you can later opt to finish a BA program if you need that to advance to a new job or post.
