Arts, Science & University Transfer

Assoc in Science

Associate in Science  - Associate in Science Degree


Graduates of the Associate in Science (A. S.) programs usually transfer to a senior institution and major in such areas as biology, chemistry, engineering, or pre-medicine. The degree stresses mathematics, natural, and physical sciences, so it is ideal for students who wish to broaden their general knowledge. Students who are currently undecided about their educational or career goals will find transfer courses that apply toward their future major or career choices. 

Because transfer requirements vary, students should work with their Academic Advisor and the transfer institution to plan a specific program of study. Visit http://www.sctrac.org to view transfer programs at a number of senior institutions.
