Return to » Programs of Study Return to: » Programs of Study

Program outcomes: Students successfully completing this program will have completed a core of courses that satisfies general education requirements for the first two years of study at most regionally accredited colleges and universities. Most students will acquire sufficient knowledge that the institutional average score of graduating students on recognized tests of general education competencies will equal or exceed the national average among institutions of similar description and mission.

This program is designed for students who intend to transfer to senior institutions of higher education to complete requirements for Bachelor of Science degrees. The University Parallel major is subdivided into different emphases. Students desiring other curricula (e.g. history, communications, psychology, human services, etc.) may design their own programs within the framework of the following general requirements. Those students desiring to transfer upon completion of the Associate of Science degree should consult the academic advisor and refer to the senior institution catalog before beginning one of the emphases.
