It depends on the field. An "Associate of Arts" or an "Associate of
Science" is a type of degree that is awarded in many different
fields, from nursing to culinary to general education to drafting.
It is typically a two-year degree, where a bachelor's degree is a
four-year degree (or two years in addition to an associate's), and
a master's is an additional two years beyond the bachelor's.
What type of job market is available depends on the field. For
example, there are a lot of nursing jobs available with an
associate's degree in nursing, however there are not many jobs
available to someone with an associate's degree in psychology.
You will need to research the field to get a feel for the job
More input from others:
- The best place for the answer to this question is the college
offering the degree. The division office or academic department
that offers the degree should have information on the kinds of jobs
their graduates have obtained.
- You can have a great paying job with only an AA degree in
general ed. I am a teachers aide for a unified school district. You
can get paid starting at $12 an hour up to $14 an hour. Depends on
what other jobs you are going for. There are a lot of jobs within a
school district. Some pay higher than others. You really should
look into it. All a teachers aide does would be grading papers,
copying papers, a little filing if really needed. Maybe help out on
the school yard and watch the kids for an hour or two. You can even
tutor. Helping with special ed kids you earn more money. Plus,
being bilingual is a plus also. They work around your schedule. You
can work 2 hrs, 3 hrs, 3 1/2, up to 5 or 6 hours. This type of job
is called a classified position. If you had your credential, you
would be certified and be able to teach.
- If you are interested in working with children in a Daycare,
Headstart, Preschool, or Public School, here is a list of jobs you
will be able to get with an Associates of Arts Degree: Media
Specialist, Paraprofessional, or Teacher Assistant. If you are
interested in doing work in an Education Service Cooperative, you
should be able to get a job.
- Many jobs like that people have an AA for math and English
education, but if you're looking for a career then go for a BA, If
you want to get a job right after your AA, then I would suggest an
AAS degree because is studies a certain job field. You can apply at
any job with an AA.
- Nowhere! I have had more turn downs since I have gotten my
degree. You are better off acting like a dumby to get a job than
you are saying you have a degree.
- Associate's degrees can be the status quo for entry into police
work, retail management, accounting/bookeeping, business, paralegal
work, or nursing. Almost all of these careers mean going back to
school for a bachelors. The key point is that they give you a
minimum background to start working- once you get a bachelor's and
go job hunting for a REAL job and salary, you're going to want to
have WORK EXPERIENCE to set you apart from the fresh bachelor's
grads who do not have this experience. An Associate's degree is
useful for the person ready to break into the work world.
