This transfer program is similar to the A.A.S. in Science in its core course sequence. Only three natural sciences are required, in addition to three computer science courses, and the specific requirement of MTH 166. Students have sufficient flexibility to select courses appropriate to the requirements of their intended transfer institution. Students should complete a DCC program comparable to the first two years of the program at the transfer institution.
Graduates of this program will be able to:
- Understand how the disciplines of science and math differ from other disciplines.
- Conduct experiments, record and interpret data.
- Understand the significance of math to all areas of science.
- Communicate appropriately within the respective disciplines of math and science.
- Work independently and collaboratively in the acquisition of scientific knowledge.
