Associate of Science - Science (63 credits)

The Associate of Science Degree in Science provides a broad background of coursework and preparation for the student who plans to transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a baccalaureate degree in science, engineering, or a health related field. Because of variations in academic preparation and career aspirations, each student in the AS in Science program is required to meet with a Mathematics and Science Department Advisor to develop an individualized program. The program outlines the sequence of required courses and electives the student will take.
