@MrsPinkPeony:

As long as your credits transfer. Some community colleges have different systems and not all classes transfer to their levels; so you may still have to take some general classes over. But yes you can get an AA even with a Bachelors.

Yup you can def get an associates even though you have a bachelors.

I have a degree in Comm if you have any questions.

Would your work accept a certificate in Comm? That’d be a lot cheaper.

You sure can!  My Fiance has his BA in Marketing and went back for an Associates in Graphic Design.  More power to you!

My degree is Communications with a concentration in tech writing. I really enjoyed my classes and am a much stronger writer than most of my co-workers (well former co-workers since I was laid off).

You can. I am doing that now with an associate’s in accounting. The bad part is that you typically have to put so many credit hours in at a school to graduate with any degree. So, I have to do at least 15 credit hours at the community college to get my associates. That means taking a couple courses I really don’t need.
