English term or phrase: baccalaureate degree v. graduate degree
Sorry, I don't know the American school system very well. Could you please explain to me the difference between these two diplomas ?
And here's the context. Thanks in advance:

Within our region, 17 public and private institutions offer baccalaureate degrees. Ten schools offer graduate degrees, including master’s and doctoral programs, in a variety of disciplines and with flexibility to meet the hectic schedules of today’s employees.
