Just letting anyone who reads this and is interested know, that there is actually a bachelor paralegal studies program at COSC. I plan on taking it as soon as my AAB-Paralegal courses are done so they can transfer over.

This is just a general studies degree with a bunch of paralegal courses that you'd bring in from elsewhere, and then business courses for your UL.  But what I was trying to say was that you do not need a bachelor's degree in Paralegal studies to become a paralegal (and you don't actually need an AA, but it's very common, and it's commonly offered at community colleges, not 4yr schools).

Other jobs that require a terminal AS/AAS are Paralegal, OTA, PTA, Dental Hygienist, etc.  There just aren't Bachelor's degrees for these fields. 
Since we're into it I'll point out that there are Bachelors degrees in Dental Hygiene
BS in Dental Hygiene (Degree Completion) | MCPHS–Online
Also, there are many OT and PT Bachelors programs.  While earning an Associates degree in these areas is the minimum qualification to becoming an OTA/PTA, holders of Bachelors degrees in these areas remain OTAs/PTAs.  You are not allowed to refer to yourself as an Occupational Therapist or Physical Therapist until you earn at least a Masters degree.

There are not OTA and PTA bachelor's programs - I specifically said I was not talking about OT and PT.  OTA and PTA are Occupational Therapy Assistant, and Physical Therapy Assistant - and those are different jobs which require far less education than OT's and PT's, which both require master's degrees.  Different jobs.

The Dental Hygienist BS is a bridge program to get people who are already DH's to get a bachelor's degree, and it's basically in Health Sciences or Public Health.  There are only 3 courses in the entire BS portion that have to do with Dental Hygiene.

Again, my point was that there are terminal degrees for many jobs that are AA/AS/AAS degrees; obviously you can go on to get a bachelor's degree, but generally speaking, these jobs don't have (and don't require) bachelor's degrees - they have and require associates degrees instead.

I find it so strange that OT & PT need masters degrees and OTA/PTA need AA/AS. IN the UK OT/PT is undergrad and OTA/PTA is neither.
