Math & Science (Liberal Arts & Sciences) (A.S.)

Study math and science at JCC

With an emphasis on the study of mathematics, science, or both, this program parallels the first two years of course content for the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degrees offered by many four-year colleges or universities. Working with faculty advisors, students can carefully select courses at JCC which will prepare them for transfer into baccalaureate programs in mathematics, biology, chemistry, geology, physics, and environmental science and forestry. Many students interested in careers in pharmacy, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, medical technology, and related areas begin their studies in this degree program. It is very important for a student to learn the requirements of the first two years of any college to which he or she may wish to transfer. Students can choose to earn the general degree or can choose to earn the degree with a track in biology, chemistry, mathematics, or nutrition (each a SUNY Transfer Path).
