A baccalaureate is a more formal name for a "Bachelor's Degree." A baccalaureate degree is awarded after completing at least 120 credit hours of college coursework, usually done in four years. The first 60 hours being lower-division or general education courses and the last 60 or so consisting of upper-division classes that are generally more focused. An Associate degree is usually awarded by a community college and is essentially the first two years, or 60 hours of college. The intent is different for different people. If that is as far as you want to go in college, then this degree can be used for vocational type training, but will also open the door to attend a four-year school at some point as well. In order to go to graduate school though, a BA or BS is necessary.
no difference. BS stands for baccalaureate
The post baccalaureate is an advanced degree. It could be either the master's or doctorate degree. The doctorate is the highest level of educational attainment.
post baccalaureate is courses or degree after/over your bachelors and usually before your masters/graduate.
an associate’s degree.
well one is associate and other is occupational
An associate's degree is a two year degree, while a bachelor's degree is a four yeard degree.
In my point of view, there is no difference between diploma and associate's degree, since they,both last in two years. thanks Asad Abulle
Any college or university degree is an academic degree.
An associate degree is granted by community colleges to students who have completed a specified program of study, usually totaling at least 60 units. Associate degrees are awards in arts and science and are sometimes referred to as two-year degrees, in contrast to the four-year degrees that are baccalaureate degrees. Baccalaureate or bachelor degrees are awarded to students who have completed a specified program of study, usually totaling at least 124 units. 2years
nothing, one just say a degree that's all.
The two words are used interchangeably. They mean the same thing; an individual who had completed an undergraduate degree.
