The Associate of Science Degree Program with a focus on STEM majors prepares students to transfer into a health, math or science related baccalaureate program. Students would have the flexibility to take the sciences and math courses that lead to their chosen pathway at a four-year institution. Traditional STEM careers include health care (such as nursing, medical lab technician, pre-medical, occupational therapist, physical therapist), research, engineering, physics, math, technology, computer science, biology, chemistry, environmental science, laboratory technicians, or STEM secondary education. Students will complete selected Foundation Bible Studies courses in preparing to continue their education, family life, and the world of work.

Upon completion of the associate of science degree the student will be able to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the natural sciences, physical, chemical, or biological as it applies to the chosen field of study.
  • Demonstrate the ability to critically examine knowledge and theory through scientific, mathematical and Biblical methodology.
  • Work as a team member in project-based learning and work environments.
  • Demonstrate communication skills through verbal, non-verbal and written modalities
