Program updates are in progress, please refer to the 2016-2017 course catalog (PDF) for program information.


Associate of Science

The Natural Sciences includes a dynamic spectrum of fields. Recent advancements have led to expanded employment opportunities for natural scientists. The successful completion of this program leads to an Associate of Science degree with anticipated transfer to a four-year program. This program provides multiple pathways for flexible transfer including: biology, chemistry, human biology, molecular biology, physiology, wildlife biology and zoology. Students interested in physical sciences, life sciences and post-baccalaureate work may choose to follow a natural science pathway as recommended by your advisor. These pathways would prepare students for careers in a variety of fields including: biochemistry, chemistry, conservation, ecology, microbiology, molecular biology, medicine, pharmacology, physical therapy, veterinary medicine, wildlife, etc.
