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 student 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. A Master's degree is advanced coursework particular to a specific program of study which typically follows The Bachelor's degree. The master's degree can take approximately two to three years to complete depending on the program of study.
Typically, there are four levels of college degrees. They are as follows from lowest to highest.
The common levels of degrees from lowest to highest are indicated below. Thus, there are levels of education.
* Associates degree (two years) * Bachelor's degree (four years) * Master's degree (two to three years post bachelor's degree) * Doctorate degree (eight years post high school completion or four years post bachelor's degree) The associate and bachelor degrees are referred to as undergraduate coursework. The masters and doctorate are referred to as graduate degrees which are advance degrees particular to a specific program of study.
masters is more advanced
The B-Arch is an undergraduate degree in architecture that can last up to five years. The B-Tech is a Bachelor of Technology and is a four year undergraduate degree.
a bachelors degree is based on a year plan, while a masters degree is six year plan and is usually more in debth on whatever you are majoring in.
An undergraduate is one who does not have any degree whatsoever...and a masters course is a course that you normally take after you do a bachelors degree!
it depends on how big the district is and whether you have a Masters or Bachelors. I would say with a masters between 30,000 to 35,000
i am looking for the answer to the above question.
masters is multiple masters and master's is possession:"that's the master's magic wand."
ONU and TCC are both private schools that accept Title IV funds (state and federal financial aid). Olivet is roughly twice as large in traditional students. Trinity is closer to Chicago with an urban campus. Trinity has approximately 40 programs of study offering bachelors degrees for traditional and adult learners. Olivet has 100 areas of study and offers associate, bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees.
There is not much of a difference. The bachelor's degree can take between 120 and 128 credits depending on the major.
Yes it is. But that all depends on the field your going in to. In certain fields such as math and science a masters could get you more than two times that of a bachelors in this field. Other fields such as humanities and social sciences have a smaller contrast between the salaries.
The words "college" versus "university" can be confusing......especially in the US, where they can mean different things, depending on the state and/or the school(s) in question.It would be nice if things in the US were more like they are in the UK, when it comes to the difference between "college" and "university." In the UK, the university is the large, overall institution; and then each of its constituent parts are called colleges... like the University of London system.And in that (University of London) system, there is no difference: a masters degree is a masters degree.Gratefully, despite the less-clear difference between "college" and "university" in the US, a masters degree, regardless which kind of institution issues it, is the same, from either. A masters degree is a masters degree. Period.In pretty much all cases, a "masters" degree consists of from, typically, 32 to 48 graduate semester credit hours, beyond a 120 undergraduate-semester-credit-hour "bachelors" degree.Though the credits are calculated differently in the UK, it's still the same: first a bachelors degree, and then a masters degree; and it matters, not, whether it's from a school that calls itself a "college," or one that calls itself a "university." In either case, it's post-secondary, graduate-level higher-education that's immediatelly beyond the post-secondary undergraduate bachelors degree.
