Minimum of 90 Credits
Associate in Science Transfer degree Track 1 in Biology, Environmental Science, Chemistry, Geology, and Earth Science encompasses some general education courses required of first- and second-year students and is intended to prepare students planning to transfer to a university in the science-related fields. It will give students the broad background needed before beginning more specialized, upper-division courses. The curriculum is not intended to fulfill General Education/University (GER/GUR) requirements, but to prepare prospective transfer science students to enter the state universities with junior standing, not only in credits but also with major/program preparation.
See Articulation Agreements for more details about the colleges who accept this degree.
