Answer by SOORLSN
There is some overlap in what you are asking. An AA or an AS, BA or BS, etc. are degrees you earn, and you get a diploma. AA/AS is community college. BS/BA is a 4 year degree. Then Master’s and a doctorate is a PhD.
A certificate is something you earn in a specific field. I have one in library and information technology. I still went to college, but didn’t take general ed courses, just the ones for the certificate.
Certificates are fine if you are after a job that just requires them. They are offered in many community colleges and range in things from dental hygiene to computer tech.
If you have a diploma you can go on to higher education. With a certificate, I would have to go take the missing sciences, PE, English, math, history, etc. if I wanted an AA!
