    el contexto es de programas de educacion, como diplomados, titulos profesionales y equivalentes.
    "students who seek associates or four-year college degree", "gain an associates degree"

    En Puerto Rico y los Estados Unidos se conoce como un "Grado Asociado"... usualmente toma unos dos años completarlo y está disponible en diversas disciplinas... grado asociado en Administración de Empresas, Ciencias Secretariales, etc.

    En España, se podría comparar con las "diplomaturas" (AA) y las "licenciaturas" (BA), aunque no sea del todo exacto, ya que un AA toma 2 años y una diplomatura 3...

    Re: associates degree

    I would like to reopen this with a few more questions:

    Does "diplomatura" sound familiar in a Latin American context? My audience is from Latin America, so I try to use terminology that is relevant for them.

    Also, at my college, there are three categories of degrees:
    Associate's Degree (2-year degree)
    Technical Diploma (more hands-on and often shorter than Associate's)
    Certificate (similar to Associate's, but very short 1 year or less)

    Any suggestions on how to translate these three terms?

    Certificate = certificado
    Technical diploma = diploma técnico o vocacional
    Associates degree= título de asociado.

    In Scotland the equivalent of an associates degree is an ordinary degree. The next level up is an honours degree.

    Re: associates degree

    Does that mean that an ordinary degree takes 2 years, and an honours degree takes four?
