Dear Faith: How many years
of study does it take to earn either an associate's degree,
bachelor's degree or a master's degree?
Faith says: An associate's degree usually takes
about two years. You can then go straight into the workforce or use
it as a springboard to a bachelor's degree program. Often, the
credits earned for an associate's degree can be transferred to a
four-year bachelor's program, but it's best to check with the
school you're considering just to be sure.
Earning a bachelor's degree generally takes four
or five years of full-time studies. Once you have your bachelor's,
you can get a master's degree in one to two years.
I hope this helps. Thanks for writing!
