I am an experienced technical writer but currently lack a degree.

I found an online program at Gateway Technical College in Wisconsin that
results in an Associate Degree in Technical Communications:

Since this college is part of a vocational/technical group, some or all of
the credits will most likely transfer to the Wisconsin state college system
later. (I'm verifying this)

My question to the group: in your experience, how marketable is an
associate degree? Most of the job postings I've seen for tech writers have
required at least a Bachelor's degree.

My areas of specialization include software documentation and instructional
material design, but I am considering transitioning to marketing

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide,

Dixie Lang
