Transfer Program

Science Education (AS.SCED)



Science Education prepares the student to transfer to a senior institution with a major in science education in secondary education. This is a sample list of major requirements. Requirements vary from university to university. Consult the catalog from the intended transfer university and a counselor or before registering.



NOTE:This degree contains a reduced number of general education hours prior to transfer; however, students will still be expected to complete their remaining general education course work at the receiving institution. Because the general education package has been altered to accommodate for the number of science and math courses needed in the first two years, only a partial IAI general Education Course Curriculum (GECC) transfer package is available for this degree.

THE ALTERATIONS INCLUDE:
Humanities and Fine Arts:
6 semester credits (one course from humanities and one from fine arts). Completion of three additional hours would be required in the junior or senior year.
Social and Behavioral Sciences:
6 semester credits (courses selected from two disciplines). Completion of three additional hours would be required in the junior or senior year.


Specific graduation requirements are identified through degree audit. Additional developmental courses in math, reading and English may be required based on placement scores. Only courses with a course number of 100 or higher meet graduation requirements for AA/AS/AES degrees.
