Associate in Science Degree
Choose this path if you intend to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a baccalaureate degree in majors such as medicine, math, or any of the sciences. Like the AA, the AS includes enough credit to transfer into a four-year college as a junior and to satisfy all the general education, non-major course requirements at the freshman and sophomore levels.
