Many U.S. colleges and vocational schools offer technical diplomas and certificates, which are shorter programs than college degrees. The definitions of "diploma" and "certificate" vary greatly among programs, schools, and accrediting bodies, but, in general, students need more credits in a specialized area of study to earn a diploma than to earn a certificate. Diplomas are usually offered in job-related fields such as computer science, automotive services, graphic design, construction, and office skills, rather than in academic fields.
