What's an Associate Degree?
An associate degree is a two-year academic program made up of 20 university-level courses. It is a stand-alone provincial credential you can list on your resume, as well as a good option to consider if you plan to continue your education to complete a university degree.
The Associate of Arts degree program provides some flexibility with course choices and scheduling, you can study full-time or part-time, and potentially year round.
