Associate in Science

What is an Associate in Science?

The Associate in Science degree is designed for transfer to college and university baccalaureate programs. You'll take a series of courses in different disciplines (which are often termed "the basics") that will assist you in determining a future major, career path, and/or area of concentration. SCC offers those basic courses which make transfer to colleges and universities a smooth process while also supporting you to achieve an AS degree.

You should note that certain baccalaureate programs may have specific pre-major requirements. Therefore, you'll need to work closely with an SCC counselor or academic advisor to develop an academic plan and determine best-fit courses.
