In recognition of the growing importance of global awareness, the Associate of Science degree requires students to take at least four courses with significant international content.  Courses meeting this requirement are identified in the College catalog and are fulfilled as a part of the requirements within the concentration or elective areas.

All students pursuing the Associate of Science degree are required to complete at least 9 credit hours in courses numbered 2000 or higher.  These classes are taken as a part of the requirements within the concentration or elective areas.

The program schedule is designed for full-time students who have completed all prerequisites and who have no college preparatory recommendations. Some individuals, especially part-time students and those taking college preparatory courses, will require additional semesters of study. Students should consult their academic advisor for help in planning their schedules.

Academic Preparation

Students entering this program should have taken mathematics courses each year of high school. Students who do not test into MTH 1280 College Algebra will need to take the necessary prerequisite mathematics courses before beginning the mathematics sequence.
