This degree focuses on the math and science courses needed for an eventual baccalaureate degree in biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, computer science and engineering. In a course-taking pattern that parallels university freshman and sophomore students in the same fields, students pursuing the AS-T complete 45 quarter credits of general education courses at the community college, and the remainder as juniors and seniors.
Students may have different course requirements, depending upon the specific field of study they plan to pursue at a baccalaureate institution:
Track 1 (biology, chemistry, environmental/resource sciences, earth science, geology majors)
Track 2 (engineering, computer science, physics, and atmospheric science majors)
