Natural Science


The purpose of the Associate in Science in Natural Science (ASNS) degree programs are to address the needs of students interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Students can use the ASNS degree to better market their science background or in preparation for transfer to a four-year institution. The ASNS in Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences and Pre-Engineering provides a clear pathway to properly prepare students for transfer with core introductory courses and laboratories in biology, chemistry, and physics typically required in the first two years of a broad range of biological sciences baccalaureate degrees at four-year universities.

We offer Associate Degrees in the most exciting and valued disciplines in the Natural Sciences field:

Graduates with an ASNS or AS may qualify for dozens of important and well-paying jobs, including:

  • Wildlife Conservation Biologist
  • Forestry and Agricultural Technician
  • Laboratory Technician
  • Quality Control Technician
