Q

What types of degrees are available at USU Eastern, and what is the difference?

Answer(s)

A

  • Associate Degrees-The Associate of Science, Associate of Art, Associate of Criminal Justice and Associate of Business degrees are designed to meet the qualifications of the first two years of a Baccalaureate Degree. Students who transfer from USU Eastern to a public four year institution of higher education in the state of Utah will be automatically cleared of all general education requirements if they have earned an Associate Degree. To receive an Associate of Arts degree a student must complete two semesters of the same foreign language.
  • Associate of Applied Science-The Associate of Applied Science Degree is designed for students who wish to complete their education in two years and obtain a marketable job skill in a specific area. This degree is not geared towards transferring to a four year institution to pursue a Baccalaureate Degree.
  • Associate of Pre-Engineering (APE)-The Associate of Pre-Engineering degree is offered to students who plan to transfer to a university and pursue a baccalaureate degree in any of the traditional fields of Engineering.    
  • Certificate of Completion-A Certificate of Completion is designed for students who wish to complete their education in one or two years and obtain a marketable job skill in a specific area.
