Associate in Science (AS-T)
The Associate in Science degree (AS-T) is designed for students who plan to transfer to science programs at four-year institutions after completing the first two years of study at Pierce. The degree enables students to fulfill the undergraduate general education requirements of most four-year science degree programs. Students are responsible for checking specific major requirements of baccalaureate institutions in the year prior to transferring.
There are two degree track options:
- Track One is for science students who wish to focus on biological and environmental/resource sciences, geology and earth science, or chemistry.
- Track Two is for students who wish to focus on engineering, computer science, physics, or atmospheric science.
