Program of Study

 Associate of Science degree (General Transfer Option) is a two-year program that provides a general education for those interested in the science fields. An AS degree helps students gain useful career skills and is also designed to serve as a stepping stone into a bachelors program at a four year college or university.

To make an informed selection of Arts and Humanities, Social Science, and Natural Science electives, Terra State advises the transfer-intending student to consult the receiving institution to ensure maximum transferability and application of credits.

It is recommended that for the natural science courses students should take sequence courses within the areas.

All students graduating from Terra State Community College with an Associate degree of any kind will be functionally proficient in common computer operations and applications. Please see your academic advisor or academic division office for further details.
