What Are the Advantages of a Degree?
One advantage of a degree is that many employers often require one, even if your major doesn’t necessarily apply to the job. Embarking on the journey for a degree and seeing it through to completion also can show commitment and dedication, which can be advantageous in the job market.
Other benefits to earning a degree include:
- Better potential for earning higher salaries. With an associate’s degree, you can earn more per year than with just a high school Diploma.
- More marketable and desirable for jobs beyond entry level.
- Learning additional skills like critical thinking and analysis.
- Networking opportunities for future career options.
- Better job benefits like insurance, retirement, and possibly even travel.
PN AST is a degree you can earn in about two years. As with a bachelor’s degree, an Associates degree requires the completion of general education courses to help provide a well-rounded education.
