What is the difference between an Associate and Bachelor’s degree?
An Associate degree is a 2-year degree popular in the US, that is often pursued by those looking to expand their job prospects. After completing an Associate degree, students may go on to pursue a Bachelor’s degree and carry over all their credits.
A Bachelor’s degree is the most popular degree around the globe and is generally pursued by those looking for more advanced study in a specific field. After completing the 4-year Bachelor’s degree, students will then have the opportunity to further their studies by earning a Graduate degree.
