  • Two years for associates, four for bachelors and about six for a masters. You can get a bachelors without getting an associates first, but you have to have a bachelors to go for your masters. Then someone who has a masters can go on and get their PHD.

    She has to be getting her associates in something. I don't think you can get a liberal arts associates degree.

  • You can get an Associates degree (2 years) in many different fields. A Bachelors degree is 4 years. A Masters degree is usually 1 or 2 additional years in the same field you received your Bachelors degree.

  • Associates degrees are easy ways to get more money for whatever your doing now usually. They tend to be pretty quick and relatively painless. and she might have meant just associates as in shes not going to worry about her BA!
