2013-2014 Academic Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Natural Sciences (Physical Sciences), AS / LT

Return to: Associate Degrees, Technical Diplomas, and Certificate Programs

Natural Science disciplines require skill in mathematics theory and application. Students interested in science fields will need to study calculus and select the natural science course options offered ‘for science majors’ to develop a strong core knowledge in the sciences.

As an alternative to taking all of the science options, a student interested in further study in physical science majors may choose to add more courses in the Humanities area, e.g., foreign language (6-12 hours) to the degree plan in preparation for transfer into a baccalaureate program. Advisors, and the university catalogs and links on the articulation web site ( can provide more guidance on specific course recommendations depending on the student’s area of interest and anticipated baccalaureate major.
