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!
