AA vs. AS vs. AAS degrees: what's the difference?

All acronyms represent different names for associate degrees. AA stands for Associate of Arts, AS stands for Associate of Science, and AAS stands for Associate of Applied Science.

The difference between Herzing’s associate degree options (AS, AAS) is in name only based on state requirements. There is no difference between curriculums – both are built to help you develop career-focused skills in accounting to prepare you for entry-level positions.
