Program Overview

The Associate in Science degree, emphasizing the sciences and mathematics, provides the first two years of study toward a bachelor of science degree. It is ideal for students who have not yet decided what their major will be or for students who have selected a major for which KCC does not offer a specific transfer curriculum. Associate in Science emphases available at KCC include Agriculture, Biological Sciences, Business, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. An Associate in Engineering Science transfer degree also is offered. If you have chosen a transfer institution, consult them to make course selections. Students enrolling in this curriculum are urged to meet with an academic advisor each semester to review course selections and transfer plans.

Additional Program Information

KCC offers the general education courses required for nearly every college major, including those not found in this catalog. Courses in this curriculum satisfy lower division requirements (first two years) toward a bachelor’s degree in numerous fields.
