Typically, a bachelors degree coms after an associates degree.
Answer An associate's degree is typically written as A.A., regardless of the area of study. A bachelor's degree in liberal arts would be B.A.
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.
It would be designated as B.A. However let me warn you, many may look at this as very strange and inappropriate. The designations really start with the completion of the maste…rs degree and higher.
Answer You are qualified to tutor or substitute-teach in those areas. Check with local schools or learning centers. Tax-prep or bookkeeping mig…ht be good for you. You may want to consider transferring those credits toward a bachelor's degree to open up even more options. The college that awarded your degree should have a career or placement office that can help you more.
Lucky for you, there is a wide array of job opportunities available for Liberal Arts graduates. Not only have you learned to write well, speak well, and think well, but you've… also demonstrated a passion for the arts, social sciences, and learning in general. You could become a teacher, a lawyer, a paralegal, an actor, a playwright, an internet marketing specialist, a graphic designer, etc. It's all a matter of your personal interests, skill sets, and willingness to attain a higher degree. A great resource would be "60 Jobs You Can Get With a Liberal Arts Degree" which is found below. Good luck!
Jobs with a Degree in Liberal Studies This totally depends on your skills and interests. If you wish to remain in your field, often teaching and academics is the route you ne…ed to go. Professional schools such as law, business, and (if you have some science background) medicine certainly accept a great many liberal studies majors. Beyond that, employers are mostly interested in hiring smart people with a good set of skills and the ability to learn and grow. Are you particularly passionate about some field? Can you turn it into a job? I know Classics majors in business and Spanish majors who started their own companies and philosophy majors who are engineers. Obviously some jobs require special training (engineering, sales, trades,...). Whether you have such training, or have the interest or ability to get the training depends on you. In my experience, few undergraduate majors really prepare you for the workplace -- even pre-professional majors. Most workplaces require skills you learn on the job. Liberal arts/studies teaches you critical thinking, writing, and communication skills, which you need everywhere. In that sense, a liberal arts major can be better than a pre-professional degree. Answer There is a good book to read and think about called Jobs for English majors and other smart people by John L Munschauer
Recently, I've been asking myself the same thing. The further along I get in my studies, an increasing cloud of confusion becomes more aparent to the logical me. Unless …you're going to be a professor, I'd say it's quite pointless.
a liberal arts degree is just a completion of classes to get a certain number of credit hours to move on and transfer to another University or complete a specific major.…

The associate of arts degree (two year program) in business is typically designed for individuals who wish to pursue a bachelors degree after completion of the associates degr…ee. It is well balanced in liberal arts, which satisfies the much of the general education cluster at the four year college or university, plus a good foundation in terms of prerequisite coursework particular to more advanced work in business at the college you are transferring to.
It's Associate's Degree, or an Associate of Arts Degree.
An associates degree in Liberal Arts, more than anything else, prepares students for further study at a 4-year degree granting college or university. Its value lies more in it…s capacity to prepare students for continuation of studies than for for immediate employment in a particular field. Students can usually fulfill many of a university's general education requirements at the associate level. Additionally, students needing to strengthen their reading, writing, and/or math skills are often better served at associate granting institutions. With an associate's degree in liberal arts, you might apply for a management job. The paralegal field might also appreciate it, if you do some additional coursework (certificate) in paralegal studies. Also, some employers ask for a degree when seeking for certain administrative positions with bigger companies. More information and personal experiences: I have an AA degree, and there really is no benefit to having it except saying that you have a piece of paper, nor are there any jobs (and I've searched) that have a decent salary (paralegal might be true [thread below], but I seriously doubt it's a full-time job w/ benefits). I have yet to find an employer seeking to specifically hire someone with an associates degree. A generation back, you were ahead of the curve if you graduated high school, but now you aren't even at the curve until you get a BA/BS. There is a downside to having an AA/AAS: getting the AA/AAS my cost you a lot of time. If you have a good job, are straight out of high school, and have a moderate amount of discipline, forget getting an AA/AAS and go straight for the BA/BS. You can still go to community college for core requirements (much cheaper than a university if paying your way), and transfer those credits to a University if you do your research. Many local Universities will accept local community college credits. Many people with Liberal Art degree find entry level positions with larger corporations. Once in the door it is usually easier to find positions that better match your skill levels. In a poor job market you will have a hard time getting a good job with an A.A. degree. Strongly consider a B.S no matter the financial cost if your single. Use the A.A. degree when your married to work for a company who will pay for your B.S over time. I got my associate in arts degree, and it is true what you say by having it really helps take care of a lot of stuff when you continue for you B.A. Plus I have so many options of directions I want to go. I can get a minor in just a semester if I choose. Plus many of the requirements in order to get into my major were met, and some were even exceeded, so I can get done quicker. However, It seems that as far as employment it looks really good and puts you at the top of the pile if your trying to get a security job, or work at mcdonalds, but it can't really get you that high paying job. However, that will come My experience is slightly different, but may also be helpful. I never got an AA degree. I got a certificate of completion from a trade school. To my complete surprise, nobody, that is NOBODY has EVER asked about my credentials! It turns out that if I can solve a problem for a company, they don't care one tiny bit whether or not I have a degree. Likewise, if I CAN'T solve a problem for a company, my having all the degrees in the world wouldn't do THEM one single, solitary bit of good either! So, my recommendation is, learn how to solve problems for companies. When you have something that you can do, (even if only type quickly), then offer it to the highest bidder. Don't work for companies that aren't helping solve problems on the planet. I worked for a liquor store once. It took over a year before I realized that I was helping people to kill themselves, and even though it wasn't a very efficient method, I still had no business participating in such a line of work. Remember, liquor stores are COMPLETELY legal in this country! Owners of them can even be considered respectable citizens. Liquor stores, however, don't provide particularly moral work. The damage that they do is far greater than the benefit to society. Don't work for companies that hurt people more than they help them. It will cost you a considerable amount of inconvenience to figure this out and follow it, but the world with be a MUCH better place if you do! Saying that an associates in arts takes different classes than a bachelors is wrong. I am currently on my way towards my bachelors of science degree and am getting my associates on the way. It is totally possible to do both and I am not wasting any classes. The associates in liberal arts in just pretty much core classes; at least in MI it is.
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.
