Or perhaps you’d like to learn a few new skills, but you’re confident you can succeed in the workplace sooner rather than later. Or maybe you’d just like to have one degree under your belt before you move on to bigger things. Whatever your reasoning, LCU offers a variety of associate degrees that can help you achieve your goals. Best of all, you get the experience of studying at a Christian university—surrounded by an intentional community of friends and faculty who will challenge and encourage you every step of the way.
Why get an associate degree?
- Obtaining an associate degree can result in a dramatic increase in your earnings over the course of a lifetime. According to the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, associate degree holders earn a third more—nearly half of a million dollars—than professionals with only a high school diploma.
- Having an associate degree can make all the difference if you decide to transfer into another school or program. By earning an associate degree at LCU, you can save thousands of dollars on your education, since you’ll have already completed many of the introductory classes for most schools.
- Life happens. If you are unable to pursue more postsecondary education, you still have an ace in the bank—you proved that you can accomplish something by finishing an associate degree.
