Diploma Offerings


CBS Diplomas

A Diploma is more in-depth than a certificate and can take a little longer to earn but may still be completed in less than two years. Diploma programs are often more technical. The classes taken in conjunction with earning a Diploma allow you to gain a thorough understanding of your field of study, though you will not earn a degree upon completion of the program.

What Are the Requirements for a Diploma?

Diploma programs offer field-specific classes designed to provide you with the knowledge you need to practice the skills you will be using daily.
