A major (also known as a major concentration or concentration) is a term for the specific group of courses that give you a basic knowledge of a field of study, which is in addition to your core curriculum. A major is a term most commonly applied to a program of study leading to a bachelor's degree. However, associate's degrees can also have majors, for instance an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in engineering technology.Diploma and certificate programs do not have majors as such. Rather, they carry a designation (for instance a CNC/Toolmaking Diploma) which is much more specific than a degree title.

Hence the designation of the diploma or certificate effectively stands in for the "major."
