Meta Major: STEM

Associate of Science Degree

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education is an approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real world problems in the above areas. The Meta Major: STEM Associate of Science (AS) degree allows students to explore the concepts from the four aspects of STEM education.

The goal of this program is to give students a strong STEM curriculum foundation, which enables them to build on and transfer to a four year institution. This transfer program will also enhance skills and competencies needed in our technology-dependent world. Students who are interested in courses related to science, technology, engineering or math but are unsure of a specific career in a STEM field are encouraged to declare this program of study.
