General Studies in Math and Natural Sciences (ASGSMS)
Associate in Science Degree
Program is also available online.
This program allows students to design a program of study to meet their individual
needs. This may be a good option if students are undecided about a major and want
to explore a variety of discipline areas with a concentration in math and natural
sciences. The program also allows students to customize their coursework to the requirements
of the senior college or university to which they are transferring. Students should
begin by meeting with a counselor who will assist them in developing a program of
study that meets all of the College's graduation requirements. A counselor can also
help students determine their interests and career and educational goals as well as
provide transfer and career information.
Complete a concentration in math or science 15 credit hours from no more than two disciplines chosen from Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Geology, Math or Physics (A minimum of 6 credits at the 200 level is strongly recommended). Students transferring to EMU should select from the following WCC courses: BIO 161, BIO 162, BIO 208, BIO 215, BIO 227, BIO 228; CEM 105, CEM 111, CEM 122, CEM 140, CEM 211, CEM 222; ENV 101, ENV 105; GLG 100, GLG 103, GLG 104, GLG 114, GLG 276; MTH 191, MTH 192, MTH 197, MTH 293, MTH 295; PHY 111, PHY 122, PHY 211, PHY 222. Please see an advisor to select courses that will meet the requirements of the college to which you are transferring.
