Program Information

School:Douglas College
Faculty:Science & Technology
Degree:Associate; University Transfer
Field of Study:Physical Sciences
Description:An Associate of Science Degree is earned upon successful completion of 60 university-transferable credits. In most cases, the degree allows you to transfer to a university and enter the third year of a four-year bachelor's degree program. Many universities prefer candidates with an Associate Degree and will accept students at a lower grade point average. To earn a specialization with the Associate Degree, students must complete 18 or more credits (of the 60 credits required for the degree) in a given academic discipline, and at least nine of those 18 credits must be considered second-year courses. A specialized Associate of Science Degree can lead into a Major or Minor Bachelor of Science Degree program at a university.
