What careers could an Associate Of Arts degree be used for?

I’m currently working towards that degree because it was the first way I could earn college credit in high school and I don’t feel like changing it right now

    Probably no "careers" because most actual careers (as opposed to jobs) requires more education and training. What job you could get will depend less on the AA and more on the classes you took and the skills you've developed. Employers hire skills and attitude. You have to covert what you learn in academic or job training classes into specific skills required by any given job. Some AA or AS programs do provide the job training for a professional job. Speak with a guidance counselor to see if any of those make sense for you and pursue those courses.

    If you plan on eventually earning a BA or BS degree, you goal in community college is to get your academic prerequisites/general education courses done that will enable you to transfer to a university. Again, speak with an academic counselor to discuss the best path for you.

    Nothing really. You can apply the credits toward a bachelor's degree at a 4-year college or university. But most AA degrees are pretty useless. There are some community college degrees that can be valuable, such as dental hygiene and veterinary technology, but a general AA isn't preparing you for any career and won't likely give you a leg up on applications anywhere.

    An Associate of Arts (AA) degree is basically the general education/core curriculum requirements for a four-year bachelor's degree.

    It is meant to substitute for the first two years of a bachelor's degree; not necessarily to support a career on its own.

    If you are not interested in getting a bachelor's degree, then look into some AAS (Associates of Applied Science) degrees at your local community college. These can include health care degrees such as nursing, radiation technology or dental hygiene; or other careers such as air traffic control or paralegal.

    If you find one you are interested in, then make sure you take the prerequisites for that course as part of your dual degree program (assuming your haven't graduated yet). Then you can transfer to that degree program once you graduate high school or complete the prerequisites, whichever comes later.
