Types of Colleges – Types of Degrees

There are a number of different types of degrees that you can get from colleges and universities, not all of which have always existed, and a number of different sorts of colleges granting those degrees.

Community colleges usually offer associate's degrees, which require two to three years of full-time class work. People getting associate's degrees typically transfer to a college to work on a bachelor's degree, or sometimes are able to enter right into the work force, especially if their degree is in technology of some sort.

Community colleges sometimes offer certificates or diplomas in technical trades as well – degrees for technology specialists or a whole host of specific medical trades like surgical technician, x-ray technician, or respiratory therapist, for examples.
