Meta Major: Health Science

Associate of Science Degree

The Health Science AS is designed to allow the student seeking an advanced degree in a healthcare field to transfer to a four-year institution for program completion. The student will have the opportunity to develop a strong foundation in general education and life science courses, while exploring areas of interest through the careful selection of elective courses that fit within a specific career path. With a Meta Major, the student can narrow their choice in major while developing an educational plan that leads to degree completion. 

The CWC nursing student working toward a bachelor’s degree in nursing at the University of Wyoming benefits from this program, as does the student interested in a healthcare field who is unsure of a particular area of focus. The student is strongly encouraged to meet with an advisor when choosing elective courses that will meet degree requirements.
