Diploma vs Degree Program

Diploma programs are not equivalent to degree programs. The differences between diploma programs and degree programs are:

1. The time it takes to complete the program. A diploma program takes less time to complete, less than a year. Degree programs, such as bachelor of arts or science, typically take two to four years.

2. The courses required to graduate. A degree program includes general education courses such as english, math, philosophy, history, biology. Courses in a diploma program are focused only on the subjects specific to the field of study; for example, photography or graphic arts.

3. The places of study. Degree programs are taken at universities and colleges. Diploma programs are awarded by technical schools or centers.
