The AA degree is Associates of Arts

The AA degree is a two year program that fulfills the requirements leading up to the BA degree (an additional 2 years beyond the AA degree)

All the credits earned for the AA degree can transfer to a 4 year university.

The AS degree is Associates of Science

The AS degree is either a one or two year program depending on your course of study.

Some of the credits earned for the AS degree may be able to be transfered to a 4 year university.

The best route, for the serious student is to go for the AA. Attending a community college for the first 2 years is half as expensive as doing those first 2 years at a university.

Well, this really depends on how different your bachelors degree is from your AA degree. If you have an AA in nursing and you want to get a bachelors degree in writing, it will probably take you another four years to obtain an AA. The only classes from your AA degree that will transfer to your bachelors degree will most likely be pre-requisites.

The AA, AS, and AAS are degree categories from which many specific programs of study fall. First you have to find which major (program of study) will lead you to your overall career goals and objectives. Typically, you will not have a choice between an AA and an AS. This degree category in put in place by the institution. In other words, if the institution decides the engineering program is an AS, they will typically not offer the same major as an AA.

Associated Arts degree

A masters is a degree, which typically follows the bachelors degree.

you get a degree and then you have a career in that field of study.
