The Value of Short-Term Degrees

For students looking to complete their education and earn valuable certifications much more quickly, short-term specialized associate degrees that can be completed in less than 24 months, are the way to go.

The ability to start your career more quickly, earn valuable hands-on certifications, and have increased flexibility are just a few of the many benefits to earning a specialized associate degree.

Check out our top four reasons why fast track degrees are so valuable!

Value of Short-Term Degrees

Put Your Career on the Fast Track

Students can be on the fast track to completing their education and starting a great career by earning a short-term degree. Graduating in as little as 24 months gives students a head-start in their careers because they don’t have to spend four to six years in school.

Short-term degrees are more career-focused and therefore can be completed much more quickly. This is especially great for students who want to start their careers as soon as possible because they don’t have to take classes they don’t need for their chosen field.

At PIHT, students take the exact classes needed for their careers, because no one wants to spend hours in classes they’re never going to use!

Hands-On Certification Prep

Another advantage of short-term degrees at PIHT is that they give students the chance to earn valuable, hands-on certifications. Once students have earned these professional certifications, employers know they have the skills needed for on-the-job success.

Certifications are offered through third-party organizations that verify someone has the knowledge and skills needed to complete a specific job. For this reason, many employers prefer certifications that show a specific area of expertise.

Added Flexibility

Balancing work, family, and personal responsibilities can be a challenge while attending school, and short-term degrees offer students the increased flexibility to do just that. Students have more time for everything else because they are only taking classes they actually need for their careers.

Having the flexibility to continue working and spending more time with family while earning a specialized associate degree can make a huge difference in students’ lives.

Increased Career Opportunities

There are many fields that prefer a degree and certification before you can get a job, so earning a specialized associate degree will open up expanded career opportunities. Also, by earning a degree, it shows employers that you’re willing to work hard and meet your goals.

When applying for jobs, having a degree can give candidates an advantage over someone with no degree. At PIHT, our short-term degrees prepare students for real careers and we’re committed to helping each and every student succeed!
