|What is an Associates Degree?|
An on campus associates degree is an undergraduate 2-year degree offered by some on campus colleges and universities. The requirement to earn a college associate degree is 60+ hours of general education classes and/or specific program classes, depending on what college or university you attend and how specific your associates degree program is. An associate degree is the most junior degree you can earn at a college or university, and comes in 3 incarnations: Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Science (AS), and an Associate of Applied Science (AAS). An associates degree can also be transfered to a college or university to obtain a 4-year bachelor's degree.
