Two bachelor's degrees, same credits?
#21
I wasn't even looking at it from the perspective of a job-seeker necessarily. It's education, hopefully via high-quality schooling. I would think the satisfaction from self-improvement would be a big reason for earning a degree. I understand that getting a job is probably the biggest reason why people pursue college degrees.

If someone has a BSBA, and they want to transfer 90 credits over and do about 30 UL social science or history courses to get a 2nd degree, the idea that such an endeavour would be considered "meaningless" is so strange to me.

It's meaningless because in most careers it wouldn't gain you anything like I said before. If you want it for your own personal reasons, that's one thing.

Indeed. For instance, you might have gotten a business degree and decided that you have better employment opportunities with a STEM degree of some kind. You might not be ready for grad-level STEM courses (nor would you even be accepted into most programs!) but there are plenty of jobs that will happily take a Bachelor's STEM degree; no Master's required.

Honestly, the push towards getting a Master's degree to get a job is devaluing a Bachelor's degree. We've already lost the Associate's degree. It wasn't that long ago that an Associate's was still an acceptable degree to have when looking for work. I hate slippery-slope arguments but, at this rate, it really won't be long before you're going to be expected to hold a doctorate to be able to compete in the job market.

In many jobs, a bachelor's degree is merely a checked box. You need a master's to even get an interview. That's how life is. Associate degrees were always more for vocational studies. Yes, there are liberal arts associate degrees, but they were meant for someone to transfer to a 4 years school.

I think I misread this based off the comments . So you are wanting to transfer a degree from one college to another ? Not take two degrees at the same college ? I don’t think you can transfer a degree to another college for the same degree . It doesn’t seem like they would allow that .

If you already have a bachelor's degree, and want another one at a different school, you are not "transferring."  You would apply at the new school as a 2nd bachelor's degree-seeking student.  At that point, if you meet the requirements, you just need the major coursework, and any pre-reqs.  So for instance, if you have a BA in Liberal Studies and you now want a BS in Business; you would need to do the Major courses for the business degree, plus an pre-reqs like Stats or economics.  And if you took any major/pre-req courses in the first degree, then you could bring those to the new school (assuming that they accepted the courses the way you took them, like if they were done via ACE, then the school would only bring them in if they accepted ACE credit).
