What is the difference between an Associate’s degree and a Bachelor’s degree?

The Associate’s program introduces students to the basic tenets of the field and also provides a foundation for continued study towards a Bachelor of Science Degree. The Associate’s degree program requires completion of at least 60 credit hours.

 

The Bachelor’s program teaches the tenets of the field in greater depth and provides a foundation for continued study towards a Bachelor of Science Degree. The Bachelor’s degree program requires completion of at least 120 credit hours.

 

As such, many of the program learning outcomes are similar. However, Bachelor of Science degree students will be expected to achieve these outcomes at a higher developmental level.
