Why choose an A.S.?

  • Build a strong, broad foundation in science & math
  • Save money by completing 60 hours of academic transfer credits at TCC before completing a bachelor’s degree in a health science-related field at a university
  • Prepare to work in health, technology & science fields, which generally have steady job growth

Marketable skills you will learn

  • Critical thinking
  • Reasoning
  • Communication
  • Personal & social responsibility
  • Teamwork
  • Computer literacy

Before you enroll, think about:

  • While the A.S. credits generally transfer to 4-year colleges and universities, it’s your responsibility to check with your destination school and program to make sure you meet their specific requirements.
  • When you work with your advisor to plan your A.S., be sure to tell them you want to transfer after you graduate from TCC.
    • Plan your A.S. with your 4-year school of choice in mind.
  • If you want to enter the workforce immediately or know you aren’t interested in transferring, explore the Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) options in the Health Science Pathway.
