We typically think of a "decimal" as number, possibly consisting of an integer part and a fractional part.

A "degree" is a unit of measure, usually of angle or temperature. The number of degrees of angle or temperature can always be expressed using a decimal number.

21.2 degrees

No conversion is necessary or possible.
Angles are measured in a variety of units. Among these is the radian. There are 2*Pi radians in 360 degrees, so 1 radian = 180/Pi degrees.
.6 radians = (.6 rad)*(180/Pi degrees/rad) = 108/Pi degrees ≈ 34.38°.
