The Associate in Science (A.S.) degree program prepares students to transfer to a four-year college or university to major in either biology or chemistry. Because requirements vary at each four-year college or university, students should check with the school they plan to transfer to or an advisor or counselor to make sure they're taking the right courses.
There are three areas of concentration for the Associate in Science degree. Links below redirect to academic catalog.
- Pre-Professional Studies - Health Emphasis - designed for students who intend to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a baccalaureate degree in fields including, but not limited to, Nursing, Dietetics, Radiologic Technology, Health Science, and Dental Hygiene. Additionally, upon completion of this degree, students will have completed many of the prerequisites for graduate programs such as Master of Occupational Therapy and Doctor of Physical Therapy.
In order to receive the Associate in Science degree, the student must complete the general and specialized education requirements for either Biology, Chemistry, or Pre-Professional Studies.
