Graduate diplomas differ from other degrees, such as a bachelor’s or master’s, due to their length in duration and subject matter. Earning a diploma requires fewer courses and does not take as long to earn. Students usually enroll in these courses after receiving a bachelor’s.

Earning an advanced degree, like a Master of Arts, may advance a stalled career or help someone move in a new professional direction. These programs vary in length, but most take two to three years to complete with part-time or full-time course schedules.
