So, you’re ready to start the next step in your education, but aren’t sure where to start. With so many options out there, the information can be overwhelming. For instance, what is the difference between a degree, a certificate, and a diploma? Are there different kinds of each? And more importantly, which one will meet your needs? Ashworth College can help you understand your options and choose which path is right for you.
A certificate program typically involves the least amount of time with regard to studies, and the least amount of money, too. They’re great options for those looking to jump straight into a skilled career, or wanting to gain an edge in a competitive job market. At Ashworth College, we offer three options:
Maybe you’ve already begun your career and want to sharpen your skills. Or, maybe you’d like to start an entirely new career. If that’s the case, a career diploma may be right for you. On this track, you’ll combine general education credits along with career training, providing you with a more well-rounded education than just a certificate. In most instances, it’s possible to complete your coursework in under a year, providing you with a cost-effective education.
Like a certificate, Ashworth offers three tracks for an online degree. Unlike the certificate programs, a degree program will take a bit more time and money to complete, particularly depending on which level is best for you.
Regardless of whether a certificate, diploma, or degree is right for you, Ashworth College provides affordable, online, and self-paced options for a variety of learning needs. To learn more, contact an Admissions Advisor today at or get started by enrolling online.
