degrees, licenses, certifications, and credentials below the master’s level in

medical and health-related fields. Any unusual degrees should be verified with

the author. Unusual degrees should always be checked with the person.

There are different categories of academic degrees for post-secondary students,

mainly associate or technical bachelor or professional, specialist, sub-

specialist, master's and doctorate. To get one of these degrees can take

between 1-8 years, depending on the degree level and the field of study.

How to cite this article: Tirado I, Sequeda J, Paternina K, Zarate A. Scaphocephaly for a quick reading. RevCIS. 2017; 4(1): 1-7 En los últimos años ha habido un cambio radical en las instituciones

de educación superior. El número de estudiantes ha aumentado,

la competencia en impartir programas de calidad es una exigencia que

demanda el entorno del mercado.

Con el pasar del tiempo, han aparecido nuevos grados académicos que

van unidos de la mano de una sociedad cada vez más tecnológica.

La globalización y el acceso democrático a la educación y las

experiencias de académicas internacionales de muchos estudiantes,

precisan la estandarización de sus títulos académicos.

Las siguientes abreviaturas corresponden a los grados académicos que

son usados y deben escribirse después del nombre y apellido de la persona.

Los grados por debajo de una maestría y que no corresponden a un

grado profesional no se escriben; a menos que sea el máximo título que

tiene una persona. Los grados especializados, licencias, certificaciones y

credenciales por debajo del nivel de maestría en los campos

médicos y en general del área de la salud deben escribirse. Los

grados inusuales deben ser verificados siempre con la persona.

Hay diferentes categorías de grados académicos para los

estudiantes de post-secundaria, principalmente: asociado o técnico,

licenciatura o profesional, especialista, maestría o magister y doctorado.

Obtener uno de estos grados puede tomar entre 1-8 años, dependiendo

del nivel del grado y el campo de estudio. Los diplomados no conducen

a la obtención de un título o grado académico; no se consideran estudios de

posgrado, pero sirve en algunas ocasiones para certificar el conocimiento

de un tema específico.
