A technical degree is an academic degree. In general, college degrees fall into three areas to include Arts, Science, and Applied Science.

The arts degree has a broad scope, with a strong emphasis on the humanities, theoretical and general knowledge in a recognized discipline, interdisciplinary field, or of a professional study.

The science degree is more of a focused approach with a science or applied science base to include a balance of liberal arts, technological knowledge, math and computer oriented skills, and practical skills needed for a particular discipline within the field.

The technical degrees usually fall under the applied science area, where the degree is very career oriented, with practical hands-on training particular to a specific field of study.
