Answer AA - an associate degree in arts Associate in Arts associate degree, associate - a degree granted by a two-year college on successful comp…letion of the undergraduates course of studies AS - Associate in science degree AAA degree - The A.A.A. or Associate in Applied Arts degree curriculum is designed for students who seek employment in the performing arts field. The degree offers a major in Music and a specialization in *Jazz/Popular Music. Each program has a common first year. Recommended preparation: An interview with the music faculty may be required before beginning the program. The A.A.A. degree may also be accepted for transfer by some senior colleges and universities. NVCC has a formal articulation agreement for the A.A.A. degree in Music to transfer into George Mason University's Bachelor of Music degree program with education and performance concentrations. For more information, see the current NVCC/GMU Bachelor of Music transfer sheet. Students who wish to use the degree for transfer to other four-year institutions should consult with a counselor or faculty advisor regarding the transfer requirements of the institution of their choice.
Applied Associates Applied Associates Degree. It typically requires 2 years of schooling and is intended to focus on a real world approach in that area. They have… AA degrees in many different areas.
An Associate of Arts degree, or AA, is a two year degree that one can receive from a community of junior college.
A.S degree is Associate of Science and is typically awarded in mathematics or physical sciences. A.A. is Associate of Arts and is typically awarded in the arts or huma…nities classes.
Pahoehoe is faster moving lava and AA is slower moving lava. Both types are found in basaltic type eruptions. They have different appearances. Pahoehoe is smooth and ropey whe…re as AA is chunky and rough.(much like top of trees) Often a pahoehoe flow can change to an AA flow depending upon the type of slope it encounters. The steeper the slope the more likely AA lava will be present. Aa has more viscosity than Pahoehoe.
Yes you can! There are instances where students have a particular reason for a second degree in an unrelated field. For example an AA in education, and an AS in nursing. Just …make sure that this type of approach serves your overall career goals and objectives. In other words, I would not take a second associates just for the the sake of a second associates. Have a reason and plan that makes good career sense, and is beneficial for you.
What is the difference between Associates of Arts, Associates of Science, and Associates of Applied Science? Associate degrees fall into three main areas. Associates …of Arts (AA) Associates of Science (AS) Associates of Applied Science (AAS) Each of the above degrees is designed to be completed after two years of study as a full-time student and provided the student takes the degree as prescribed by the college. In addition, most every community college requires that every incoming student be placement tested before they register for their first semester (unless they fall into an exemption category). This test is not an admissions test and has no bearing on a student's acceptance to the college. In fact, most students have already been accepted to the school before they take the test. It is not a test that is passed or failed, but simply to determine whether an individual needs to take some refresher courses before entering college level coursework. This is to ensure the student has the appropriate basic skills to succeed at the college level. The test is broken down into four parts; two parts English and two parts mathematics. The English includes grammar (sentence sense), and reading comprehension. The math includes computation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, decimals, fractions, square roots, and percentages), and the equivalent of a high school algebra I. If the student scores low in any these areas, then they will be required to enroll in the indicated remedial course/s starting with their first semester . Thus, the two year degree plan may turn into a two and a half year, or possibly a three year plan depending on how much remedial work is needed. To limit this time, students have the option to enroll in summer session courses. Now let us look at the inherent differences between the degrees: Associates of Arts (AA) The Associates of arts is really designed as a fully transferable degree to a four year college or university for those pursing a Bachelors degree. It serves to complete most of the four year institutions general education cluster area, which amounts to the first two years of a four year program. It also serves to complete any perquisite courses needed for the four year institutions curriculum major and minor requirements. Students are admitted to Junior level status provided they have completed the matching associate's level degree. In other words, Business AA to Business BA, Engineering AS, to Engineering AS etc. Thus, within this degree students will be required to have a well rounded educational foundation to include, English literature, history, social science, laboratory science, humanities, math, communications, etc. These courses are in addition to the student's major field of study. Associates of Science (AS) Within the AS degrees a student will notice there are less general education requirements, and more career oriented course work. You will find this in curriculums to include, Nursing, Engineering, some Computer Science and Allied Heath fields. Still, these programs should be fully transferable to four year institutions provided the degree matches that of the four year college or university's program of study, as mentioned above under AA degrees. Associates in Applied Science (AAS) The AAS degrees are very career oriented and designed to give the student all the expertise needed for entry level positions upon completion of the degree. Therefore, the student will notice most of the AAS degree is made up of professional phase courses particular to a specific field, and a very limited number of general education courses. This has promoted the myth, that all AAS degrees are not transferable to four year colleges and universities. I will admit, as the degree was originally designed; transferability was not the original intent of this type of degree. Therefore many AAS degree fields of study did not transfer to four year institutions very well. In fact, in some categories it was almost like starting over. Today this is not so. Community Colleges today have what is known as Joint Admissions or Dual Admissions articulations with four year institutions, where if the student completes the agreed upon program of study successfully, the four year institution will take the degree full faith in credit and grant the student Junior level status. This includes AAS degrees. However, it is strongly recommended that a student who is seeking to transfer to a four year institution at a later date, make an appointment with a Transfer Counselor at the Community College for the pros and cons of AAS transfer as well as more detailed information.

The associates degree is designed as a two year program of study as a full-time student provided the student takes the degree as prescribed by the college, and provided the st…udent does not require prerequisite coursework as a result of basic skills testing. There are some programs of study that may take a bit longer depending on the number of credits required. Usually these are programs within the health related fields. In addition, for students who require developmental course work as a result of basic skills testing, it would take longer. How much longer would depend on the extent of the developmental courses they are required to take. Evidently, those individuals who attend college on a part-time based would also extend their time in school. How much longer would depend on the credit load carried each semester . Typically, an associates degree takes between 60 and 64 credits to complete depending on the specific school, program of study, and state mandates. A bachelor's degree in most areas can require between 120 to 128 college credits particular to a specific program of study. This would be based on a college or university that operates on a regular two semester academic year which is the most common. For institutions that operate on a tri-semester or quarter-semester it would be quite different. That being said, the Bachelor's degree - in most cases - is designed as a four year program of study , provided the student is full-time and follows their chosen program of study as prescribed by the college or university, and also provided the individual does not require prerequisite or developmental coursework as a result of basic skills testing. The minimum credit load for a full-time student is no less than 12 credits per semester. However, to complete the degree within the four years, a credit load of approximately 15 to 18 credits is recommended. For individuals who work or who have other responsibilities that would prohibit them from attending full-time, completion of the degree may take twice as long. Still, some of this time can be cut down by attending summer sessions and/or interim sessions. In addition, the bachelors and associate degrees are referred to as undergraduate degrees while the masters and doctorate degrees referred to as graduate degrees.
The main difference between a AAA and a D battery is the size. With the size, you can put more charge holding materials, such as Lithium-Ion, Ni-Cad, etc. They both have… the same voltage output, but the D battery can hold more charge. Since electronic devices "pull" charge from the batteries, the D battery will last longer comparitively to a AAA battery in a similar device. This is why you see AAA batteries used in small devices, that have low current draw, and D batteries are used in items that require more power, such as boom boxes, and such.
They are different levels of Major League Baseball's minor leagues. From the Majors down, they are Triple A, Double A, and Single A. There are also instructional leagues. (E.G…. - the MN Twins have the Rochester (NY) Red Wings as their AAA team, New Britain (Conn.) Rock Cats in AA, and the Fort Myers (FL) Miracle and Beloit (WI) Snappers in A.) The MLB teams sign contracts with their affiliates. (E.G. - the Beloit Snappers were affiliated with the Milwaukee Brewers until 2004.)
The AA stands for associate of arts degree (two year program of study) which is typically designed as a transfer program for those students intending to apply to four year col…leges and universities to pursue their bachelor's degree after completion. The AA is a general degree type from which many specific programs of study fall. In other words, and AA in business, or communication, fine arts, criminal justice etc. The AB is a Bachelor of Arts degree (Latin, Artium Baccalaureus). This is a four year program of study, and can be abbreviated either AB or BA. This is another general degree type from which many programs of study fall, as with the associates degree. There are four common degree types. I have listed them below from lowest to highest. . Associate . Bachelor . Master . Doctorate (highest level of educational attainment. The above are abbreviated in various ways depending on the specific program of study, the college or university, and the country obtained in.
AA is the abbreviation for "Associate of Arts", which is a degree. If you meant something else, please spell it out in full; otherwise, your question kind of answers itself.… Occasionally people will obtain an AA degree and then go on to a BA or BS degree. However, you don't actually need to get an AA first, and it's far more common to proceed directly to the Bachelor's degree.

AA is generally the abbreviation for "Associate of Arts" degree. This is the degree given by many two-year colleges, often called Community Colleges (which used to be called "…Junior Colleges"). Some also award the AS-- Associate in Science degree. Typically, an Associate's degree is the equivalent of a year, or in some cases a year and a half, of courses at a four-year college, and there are many students who transfer their Associate's degree credits so that they can complete a four-year degree.
