What is an Associate Degree?
An associate degree is an undergraduate academic degree awarded by community colleges, junior colleges, technical colleges, bachelor's degree-granting colleges, and universities upon completion of a course of study usually lasting two years. In the United States, and some areas of Canada, an
associate's degree is often equivalent to the first two years of a four-year college or university degree.
