Online Associate Degree Programs

Associate General Core

An associate degree is an academic program taken at the undergraduate level (the first stage after secondary school). It aims to give students the necessary technical and academic knowledge and transferable skills they need to go on to employment or further study in their chosen field.

For some students, an associate degree provides preparation for a bachelor’s degree, while for others it is a qualification, helping to improve employment prospects compared to only having completed a secondary-level education.
