Response . A bachelor's degree is a 4 year degree. It takes about 40-45 classes. Half of the classes are core classes (math, English, history, social studies, science), and the other half of the classes are for your major.. An associate degree is a 2-year degree. It takes about 20-24 classes. There are two types of associate's degrees: career and transfer ... A transfer associate degree (also known as AA or as) is for students who plan to earn a bachelor's degree after obtaining an associate's degree. To obtain an AA or AS degree, you take 5-7 classes for your major and the other 15 classes are core classes..
