The Associate in Science (AS) degree is awarded when you complete a minimum of 60 credit hours of classes, including the specified general education requirements for the degree, with a grade-point average of at least 2.0. Coursework focuses on math and science classes: these are especially appropriate for careers in pharmacy, allied health and veterinary medicine, for example. HCC faculty also advise to the Associate of Science Pre-Professional Program (SPPP) and Associate of Science Pre-Engineering (PEP), which is designed to provide a strong science background for pre-professional programs. The AS degree readily transfers to a four-year institution: working with advisors from both HCC and your desired university will ensure that each course you take will move you towards your desired bachelor's degree.
