Associates Degrees

An On-ramp to Industry or a First Major College Milestone

If you decided to take a break after high school or you stopped out of college before earning at least 60 transferable college credits, our associates degrees may be the right option for you.

The NYU School of Professional Studies has made it more affordable than ever to earn an associates degree from a world-class institution of higher learning—NYU. Tuition for these programs is now comparable to what you would pay for your education at a local community college.

The NYUSPS Division of Applied Undergraduate Studies offers four associates degrees: the AA in Liberal Arts, the AAS in Business, the AAS in Health Administration, and the AAS in Information Systems Management. Each of these degrees provides a solid liberal arts core—the hallmark of the well-rounded education that hiring managers seek. From day one, the professionally oriented programs immerse you in industry focused content that readies you for the job market or for additional studies at the baccalaureate level. The liberal arts degree allows you to explore a broad range of subjects that will build your critical thinking skills, develop inavaluable quantitative reasoning skills, and ground you in history and culture.

Students who successfully complete one of our associates degrees have the option of continuing on in one of our many bachelors degree programs.
