GENERAL STUDIES IN SCIENCE
Associate of Science Degree

The General Studies in Science program is designed for students desiring to pursue a flexible plan in the area of mathematics, science, and computer science. Students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university are encouraged to obtain information about the course requirements for at least two possible majors of interest from their four-year college or university and choose their courses appropriately. Students who do not choose their courses very carefully should expect to spend an additional five or six semesters in order to complete a bachelor's degree with a specific science major.

To receive an Associate of Science in General Studies in Science, students must: (a) make a minimum grade of C in all required math and science courses and (b) have an overall GPA of 2.0 or greater.

1 The science courses must include a two-semester sequence of four-hour courses from the Core Curriculum List in BIOL, GEOL, CHEM, or PHYS. The remaining science courses may be from any BIOL, GEOL, CHEM, ENVR, PHYS, or EPCT.
2 Three math courses must be chosen from among MATH 1316, MATH 2412, MATH 2413, MATH 2414, and MATH 2415. Students should consult with a mathematics advisor to determine where they should begin their mathematics study. They may need to take one or more courses prior to taking these, such as MATD 0390 or MATH 1314. Students are encouraged to begin higher in the mathematics sequence if they meet the prerequisites. Students who will need to take more than one semester of calculus for their four-year degree are very strongly encouraged to take all calculus courses at the same school in order to avoid changing textbooks in the middle of the sequence.
3 Select from: HIST 1301, HIST 2301, HIST 2327, or HIST 2381. HIST 2301 and HIST 2381 may only be taken once.
4 Select from the appropriate section of the Core Curriculum Course List.
5 Select any Speech course from Communications in the Core Curriculum Course List.
6 Students are encouraged to choose a course that fits their four-year degree plan. Most four-year degree plans in science require some foreign language courses which students are encouraged to take in the first two years.
