It depends on what field, in electronics an associates degree might give you an edge at the moment. Later on, a 4-year degree will probably be required, since a lot of people went back to school during the recession.
Having any degree is better than having no degree at all. An Associate degree is typically useful to break into a field, but you may require to return to school for an advanced degree at a later point in your career for professional growth.
Associate degrees are typically offered by community or junior colleges, but some Bachelor degree granting schools may also offer these programs. Stevens-Henager College is among schools that offer both Associate and Bachelor degrees in several fields. For example, Stevens-Henager College’s graphic arts programs are offered at both Associate and Bachelor’s levels.
