Associate in Science (AS) Degrees

The Associate in Science degrees are designed to prepare students for immediate entry or advancement into employment requiring specialized skills. The programs consist of at least sixty (60) credits in two basic areas. One area will be specialized courses in the career area, and the second will be general education courses. General Education courses are designed to help you become a well-rounded individual capable of thinking and acting as a mature, educated, and enlightened citizen. These courses will also enhance the employment potential since they will broaden your knowledge.

When you follow an Associate in Science degree, you are not necessarily preparing yourself for transfer to a university. Earning one of the degrees should prepare you for a career that requires study beyond high school but does not require a four year degree. Should you decide to attend a university, you may be required to do additional work at the freshman or sophomore level. Two Associate in Science degrees presently have statewide articulation agreements which provide for the articulation of Associate in Science degrees to baccalaureate degrees. They are the Business Administration and Hospitality and Tourism Management degrees. You are encouraged to discuss career plans and seek advising assistance from a program contact or department head identified for each program.
