Bachelor's Degree vs. Associate Degree

In traditional terms, a bachelor’s degree is a four-year degree, while an associate degree is a two-year degree. However, these timelines are just averages. In fact, with DeVry's year-round, 8-week class sessions, some bachelor's degrees can be earned in as little as 2 years and 4 months.2

When deciding, it is more helpful to look at what each degree offers rather than how long it takes to earn one or the other. Look at an associate degree as a way to establish a basic set of skills in your area of interest. This can be a great first step if you want to add a credential to your resume sooner than later. A bachelor's degree, on the other hand, will provide a deeper dive into business, management and technical skills, as well as your specified area of study.

A bachelor’s degree program can be seen as having two parts. Core courses focus primarily on fundamental skills, while program-specific and specialized courses help you further hone your skillset in your chosen major or field of study. At DeVry, many of our associate degree programs are designed to stack into a related bachelor's degree. This means you can complete many of your core classes and earn an associate degree, and when you're ready, apply those credit hours directly toward your bachelor's at DeVry. Of course, the specifics will vary based on exactly which associate degree and which bachelor’s degree programs you choose.

Benefits of a Bachelor's Degree

Earning a bachelor’s degree means taking the next step in your education. With this additional credential on your resume, potential benefits may include:

  • Broader job possibilities: Many positions in today’s workforce require or recommend a bachelor’s degree. By earning one, you may find that you qualify for more potential job opportunities.
  • Specialized knowledge: A bachelor’s degree provides a broad foundation of knowledge and the opportunity to gain hands-on experience, demonstrating to employers that you are well-versed in your area of study.
  • Potential for higher earnings: In many cases, positions that require a bachelor’s degree may pay more than positions that don’t.
  • Personal growth: Earning a bachelor’s degree can help improve your self-confidence and expand your overall understanding of the world.
  • Job satisfaction: Pursuing a career you’ve always wanted is a great way to improve your mindset about work.

FAQs: Bachelor's Degree


What is a Bachelor's Degree?

A bachelor’s degree is a college degree earned in a specific field of study, such as accounting or information technology. Some students earn a bachelor’s right after high school, while others spend time in the workforce or pursue an undergraduate certificate or associate degree before enrolling in a bachelor’s degree program. Some fields require a bachelor’s degree for entry, while others may require this degree for higher-level positions such as management. A bachelor’s can stand on its own or serve as a steppingstone to a graduate degree such as a master’s or MBA.


How long does it take to get a Bachelor's Degree?

A traditional bachelor’s degree is generally considered a four-year degree. But that’s only an average.
