Associate degrees are college degrees offered at the undergraduate level. Associate degree programs typically last around two years for a full-time student. During the course of study, students gain specific skills and knowledge needed to pursue a career or transfer into a four-year program.

What is an associate degree in English? In an associate degree program in English, students may learn how to use various skills involved with the interpretation, understanding, analysis, reading and research of various texts and pieces of English literature. Depending on the program, the works students study can be from different genres, time periods and social contexts. Additionally, students in these programs may examine and question different perspectives and learn to develop their personal views and opinions. They might also explore contemporary theory and various writing approaches, and acquire necessary critical-thinking skills and appreciations for different cultures.

Earning a degree in English is beneficial in a variety of ways. For example, graduates of the program can experience expanded career options, as well as the opportunity to possibly apply for a four-year degree program in English.

The costs involved with earning an associate degree can vary. It all depends on which school you want to attend and its location. Research potential schools and programs to gain a full understanding of all costs involved.

Graduates holding an associate degree in English may go on to pursue careers. However, it is common for many graduates to continue their education, as many positions can require a four-year degree in the field. Some areas where English degree holders might work include business, the government and communications. Possible job titles include technical writer, copy writer, editor and library technician. The useful skills provided by the program can make individuals good job candidates for various other positions in other areas as well.
