Degree Type(s)
Degree types should be a list of the various types of degree you offer for this degree.  Use short abbreviations, like "B.A.", "Ph.D", or short words like "Master's".  You can reorder your degree types by clicking and dragging on the cross-hair next to the degree type.

Degree Image
The degree image appears next to the degree information in the listing (see above).  It should be an image 220px by 220px.
