There are several advantages when obtaining any degree even the minimal, that being an Associates. Bottom line, any attempt to better yourself is noticed by employers. I am ma…king 55K a year living in NY. I am being compensated for my work experience not my degree I recently earned. However, now that I have this degree I am qualified for positions that pay $60-65K a year that require at least an AA along with the 10 years of relevant work experience I carry. Obtaining my AA has made me better at my job and shown my employers that I am capable and responsible being able to obtain a degree while working fulltime. You have to keep feeding your brain or it gets stuck in slow mode. Never stop learning! Every accomplishment opens a new door.

The number of credits it takes to complete an Associates Degree in general will depend on the state mandate, and your program of study.

However, there are some programs that require much more, to include an Associate of Science degree as a Registered nurse, Respiratory Therapist or Dental Hygienists to name a few. These programs will require in some cases completion of credits well into the seventies. Usually this is because of the professional phase courses needed to complete the degree. Viper1

A degree will open up more possibilities than having no degree. However, an associate of arts degree (AA) is typically for those individuals who plan to transfer to a four yea…r college or university, and therefore is not specific to a career oriented program of study. Thus, you really have nothing specific. You can go through the US Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook 2008-2009 which will list all the occupations from A through Z and the education required for each and much more.

The associate of arts degree is designed for transfer to a four year college or university and not specific to a career. That being said, the best occupation for you is one yo…u have a passion for. You must acquire a vision; a clearly articulated picture of the future you intend to create for yourself. The vision should be specific and based on a passion for what you want to do, and the benefit it will bring to others as well as yourself. Once you acquire that vision your path will become clear.
Liberal Arts degrees cover those subjects or skills considered essential in classical antiquity. These included the core areas of Grammar, Rhetoric, and Logic, and later exten…ded to arithmetic, Geometry, Music, and Astronomy. The history, culture, and politics of the period are studied in context. These are usually Humanities degrees, with a majority focus on the Liberal Arts.
Answer 1: Any "Associate of Arts" (AA) or "Bachelor of Arts" (BA) degree is a "liberal arts" degree. And schools which offer both of those degrees usually offer "psychology" a…s a major. So, the answer, categorically, is "yes." However, psychology is what's called a "social science." Note the word "science" in that phrase. Therefore, at many schools -- most, in fact, I'd wager -- a degree in psychology will tend to be a science degree... ...such as an "Associate of Science (AS) in Psychology," or a "Bachelor of Science (BS) in Psychology." The salient difference between an AA/BA and an AS/BS is that the AS/BS degrees are going to require a little bit more math and science coursework than would an AA/BA degrees. The reason you're asking, I'll bet, is because you're hoping that you can get a psychology degree without having to take as much math and science courses as a typical AS/BS degree requires. You'd rather do the lesser amount of math/science that a typical AA/BA degree requires. That's understandable, but becausee psychology is a social science, there's going to be a certain amount of math/science that you're going to have to take to get the degree, no matter what. In fact, get this: Some colleges/universities are required by their accreditors, for whatever reasons, to award only AA/BA degrees (and not AS/BS degrees) in certain subjects which other schools normally award only as AS/BS degrees. So some students enroll at such AA/BA-centric ("liberal arts") schools thinking that maybe they can avoid taking all the additional math/science courses typically associated with AS/BS degrees... even if they major in psychology! However, even in a case like that, one must still take all the math and science (and statistics, too) courses that any good psychology degree, regardless of school, would typically require. It's simply unavoidable; and the reason is because all such schools are "regionally" accredited, and the regional accreditors simply won't allow a psychology degree to be awarded by any of their accredited schools if said degrees don't contain enough math/science. So, if you want a psychology degree (and, by the way, you'll definitely learn how to spell it, if you pursue such a degree), then you're going to have to take pretty much the same amount of math/science, whether the degree is designated as an AA/BA or an AS/BS. A certain amount of math, science and statistics is required of all social science degrees. An psychology is a social science degree. So just bite the bullet and take it! Seriously, though, there's no reason to fear math and/or science. Really... I'm not kidding. People get it in their heads that it's hard, but it really isn't. There's simply a mindset -- a way of thinking -- that needs to be assumed; and then a simple logical thought process that needs to be employed, and suddenly math and science become easy... fun, even! I'm serious. Students get it in their heads that math and science is hard, and then they fear it. But there are courses you can take out there, online -- some of them even free -- that will help you to get past your fear of math and/or science. They're really excellent! And they work! Once you're no longer afraid of math/science; and once you can easily work through courses in those subjects, you'll stop being afraid of getting a psychology degree that's an AS or BS, rather than an AA or BA. Just Google phrases like "fear of math" or "fear of science" and start reading. You'll see what I'm talking about.
