A bachelor's degree is typically a longer, more detailed program while an associate usually takes less time to complete and focuses on more entry-level skills. Each degree can be earned faster or slower depending upon your pre-existing qualifying transfer credits, course of study and course load.
Associate degrees tend to cover more generalized knowledge about an industry while a bachelor's dives deeper into your field of study. Both degrees are excellent options that can potentially increase your appeal to an employer.
With embedded programs at DeVry, you may not have to choose between an associate and a bachelor's. In select programs, you can earn an associate degree while on the path toward pursuing your bachelor’s.
