Summary

The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degree programs offered by selected colleges and universities in 13 western states were examined to determine relevant information regarding the composition of the degrees offered. The study specifically concerned: the purpose of the degree, the title assigned to the degree, the length of time required to complete the degree, the total quarter-hour credits required for completion of the degree, the number of quarter-hour credits required in the major field of study, and the number of quarter-hour credits required in the areas of math-science, social science, English and humanities, physical education, general education, and electives. Attention was also given to the provisions made for applying associate degree work toward a bachelor's degree. Information was obtained from college catalogs, bulletins, and other published information furnished by the 20 selected four-year degree granting colleges and universities included in the study. Conclusions reached from the study findings are: (1) the primary reason for offering associate degree programs is to prepare the recipients for employment; (2) there is no consistency of titles among the programs in related areas of study; (3) the average number of quarter-hour credits required to complete either the Associate of Arts or the Associate of Science degree is 99, and the time required to acquire these credits is, in most cases, two years and in no instance exceeded two years and one semester. The mean for each area of the degrees is tabulated. (DB)
