Associate of Science (A.S.) in Science
This is a suggested full-time schedule for a student who has completed any developmental course work and has no transfer credits. Refer to the College catalog for specific requirements in selecting General Education Courses.
*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101 in the first semester at CCBC. This is a 1-credit class, and it does not count towards the number of credits required for a degree or certificate. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) for this requirement to be waived.
**Students should meet with the discipline coordinator to plan and select appropriate electives, based on the recommended electives for their intended major and transfer institution.
Upon successful completion of this degree, students will be able to:
recognize characteristics of lifelong learning: independent thinking, self-discipline, and ethical behavior;
demonstrate the technological skills needed to advance academic pursuits at a senior institution;
apply a set of analytical and problem-solving skills to real-world situations;
demonstrate interpersonal skills that reflect an understanding of diversity and the need for teamwork; and
communicate information to a variety of audiences using appropriate written, spoken, and/or visual methods.
The A.S. degree program recognizes mastery in mathematics and/or science and is intended for transfer to Bachelor of Science programs at four-year institutions.
