Graduates of the Associate in Science (A.S.) program usually transfer to a senior institution and major in such areas as biology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics or pre-medicine. The degree stresses mathematics, natural, and physical sciences, and 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. 

To assist students with their career and education goals, within the Associate in Science degree the College has established career pathways intended for advising purposes. The career pathways include a limited number of courses specific for the career or discipline in which a student wishes to pursue. Students choosing a career pathway within the A.S. degree will graduate HGTC with the Associate in Science degree.

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.
