Both are handy and neither one will work against you.

Any kind of degree from an actual college or university will give you the broad education that will help you over the long run.

Certs are usually vendor specific are are great for staying abreast on the latest stuff and keeping your skills current.

Earning a degree will never count against you (unless it's from a diploma-mill type college). A degree helps get you the first real job. From that point on it's all up to you and that is where certs can come in handy.
