Getting frank with Franklin
Did you know that as of right now, colleges can offer and deliver four-year degrees but not three-year degrees? Instead, colleges are required to offer three-year advanced diplomas in many areas important to the economy. This is something of a global anomaly. In most of the world, post-secondary programs that are essentially the same as our colleges’ three-year programs award degrees to graduates rather than diplomas.
