What Exactly Is An Associate Degree?

You might have heard the term “associate degree” but aren’t exactly sure what it means. So, how is it different from other degrees? How long does it take to get one? Associate degrees provide an educational foundation to increase your job opportunities. They’re perfect for students who have just graduated high school and don’t want to stay stuck in a retail or food service job. 

When you compare to four-year universities, associate degrees take less time. Most students finish in about two years. They’re shorter because they’re focused on the topics you need to know for your chosen field. You won’t have to spend time on endless general education requirements. And, remember: time is money. Therefore, less time in school means less time you’re paying tuition. Furthermore, if you have a day job or other daytime responsibilities, you could take your courses at night. Getting an associate degree could be the most efficient, affordable option for your career!
