    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...

    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.

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