The General Science curriculum provides foundation courses that may lead to a science or health paraprofession or toward one of the numerous science-related professions requiring additional work at a senior institution or a specialized school. Students planning to continue their education in areas such as dentistry, medicine, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy, physics, biological science, or chemistry may elect to pursue the Associate of Science in General Science degree.

Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution should consult an advisor or counselor about obtaining either an Associate of Science in General Science or an Associate of General Studies with a concentration in the sciences by following an articulation agreement with participating institutions.
