Associates Degree

<p>I'm still trying to make a decision on what I want to major in. My community college offers Journalism degree and a Digital Media Arts degree. The Digital Media Arts degree is the closest I can find that has to do with film. Now, for the two, which do you think has the better job opportunities? I want to do Radio Broadcasting but I'm a little worried about the jobs for that. One more question, do you think an getting an associates degree for the major your going into a plus instead of just transferring without a major? Hopefully I'm making sense. My dream school is USC so I'm trying to do anything to get myself ready for a few years.</p>

<p>I wouldn't plan for an associate's, but if you happen to fulfill the requirements on the way to transferring then go ahead and apply for graduation (that's how I ended up with mine). An associate's degree may give you a little bit of an edge over high school graduates, if that is all you have. But if you are continuing on to get your BA, then it really doesn't matter.</p>

<p>As for which major offers the most job prospects, I don't know. Have you looked at the Occupation Outlook Handbook from the Department of Labor? It's a really good resource for this sort of thing: Occupational</a> Outlook Handbook, 2010-11 Edition</p>
