Math and science are at the heart of many professional fields such as engineering, medicine, mathematics, biology, chemistry, and physics. An Associate of Science (AS) degree, which is sometimes referred to as a “university parallel” or “transfer” degree, provides a learning foundation in mathematics and the sciences. Although some students work toward the AS degree for personal enrichment, many plan to transfer to four-year colleges and universities to continue to work towards a bachelor's degree.
You can complete this program in four semesters, going full-time and carrying the required number of hours, or you may choose to extend the amount of time for completion.
The Center for Math & Science is a world-class center teaching our students how to use knowledge in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) for ongoing participation in the workforce, transfer studies, and the world at large.
CCD's Center for Math & Science prepares intellectually confident students to apply STEM concepts in the global community. We provide a rich academic foundation in a supportive setting, including accessible, highly qualified faculty and state of the art learning environments. Rigorous, affordable, convenient: start here to go anywhere.
