Associate Degree

What is an Associate Degree?

An Associate degree is a higher education degree offered at community colleges, technical schools and universities that usually takes about two years to complete. In some countries, an associate degree can be granted after a student completes the first two years of a bachelor’s degree. Some conventional types of associate degrees are Associate of Arts (AA) degrees, Associate of Science (AS) degrees and Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees. Associate degrees are the required higher education qualification for some professional fields, while in other sectors they provide an advantage over those without a degree. 

 

What are the benefits of taking an Associate Degree?

There are numerous benefits of taking an associate degree program. Getting an associate degree offers a student the college experience for two years. This develops a more advanced understanding of the field of professional focus as well as helps to build character. Associate degree graduates are often more sought after than those without a higher education degree, and may also be eligible for higher pay. Employers recognize the deepened familiarity and increased understanding of the subject that comes with associate degree level study.

What do we study in an Associate Degree?

Associate degree programs are offered in a wide range of specializations across most academic disciplines. There are associate degrees in Technology, Business, the Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences. Associate degree programs are offered at schools around the world. For example, one might want to obtain an Associate Degree in Interior Decoration and Design in Australia, or an Associate of Science in legal Assisting in the USA.

What kind of career improvement can you expect with an Associate Degree?

Obtaining an associate degree can have a significantly positive impact on one’s career prospects – from competitiveness in the job search to better pay and eligibility for promotion. Companies may be more willing to consider a bid for promotion from a working professional with experience if they also have a degree. Associate degrees also open the door to continued higher education, as some degree credits may be transferrable towards a bachelor’s and on to a master’s program.

How much does it cost to take an Associate Degree?

The costs of taking an associate degree vary from one country to another and one school to another. The tuition cost may also vary depending on the subject of the associate’s degree. It is important to gather information about the cost of an associate degree program while making a choice of which associate degree is right for you. You can contact the school offering the associate degree program of choice to get more information about the tuition prices, other costs and if any financial support can be given (in the form of scholarships or aid).

Why take an Associate Degree Online?

 

Taking an associate degree online can open the door to higher education to those who would not be able to study otherwise, due to scheduling conflicts or location. Associate degree online programs make use of e-learning technology to bring the classroom to you in your home office or wherever you are. Working around a busy schedule can seem daunting, but online associate degree study is designed to help you realize your goals without giving up on your other commitments. Teachers can communicate directly with their students in associate degree programs online. The end result of a successful pass in an associate degree online program is the same degree full-time on campus students obtain.
