Description

The Liberal Arts and Sciences A.S. degree requirements for Science provide opportunities for students to explore career options and to select courses to facilitate their transfer to a four-year college. Students should discuss their plans with faculty advisors. Faculty members can assist students in selecting courses that meet the requirements of the college to which the student intends to transfer. Although students may select courses in different subject areas, they will receive the Liberal Arts and Sciences A.S. degree in Science diploma. By appropriate course selection in consultation with a faculty advisor, students pursuing the Liberal Arts and Sciences degree may prepare for transfer to upper division study in the subject areas listed below.

BIOLOGY: Students who plan to transfer and earn the baccalaureate degree with a major in biology in preparation for careers in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine or education should consult with faculty in the Biology Department (292-2029, Rm. 8-228). Students interested in these opportunities and who also plan to complete the associate degree in two years should successfully complete three years of high school mathematics through trigonometry and one year of chemistry. A fourth year of mathematics is strongly recommended.

CHEMISTRY: Students who plan to transfer and earn a baccalaureate degree with a major in chemistry in preparation for a career in pharmacy, education, or chemical research should consult with faculty the Chemistry/Geosciences Department (292-2425, Rm. 8-212). Students interested in these opportunities and who plan to complete the associate degree in two years should successfully complete three years of high school mathematics through trigonometry and have above average performance in high school chemistry. A fourth year of mathematics is strongly recommended.

ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE: Students who plan to transfer and earn a baccalaureate degree in either environmental science or in a traditional science with an environmental science emphasis should consult with faculty in the Biology Department (292-2029, Rm. 8-228). Students interested in these opportunities and who plan to complete the associate degree in two years should successfully complete three years of high school mathematics and two years of science. Three years of science including chemistry are strongly recommended.

GEOSCIENCES: Students who plan to transfer and earn a baccalaureate degree with a major in geology in preparation for careers in the petroleum and mining industries, conservation or science education should consult with faculty in the Chemistry/Geosciences Department (292-2425, Rm. 8-212). Students interested in these opportunities and who plan to complete the associate degree in two years should successfully complete three years of high school mathematics. Four years of mathematics, one year of high school chemistry, and one year of high school physics are recommended. Students interested in the Water Resources major at SUNY Brockport should also consult with Geosciences faculty.

PHYSICS: Students who plan to transfer and earn a baccalaureate degree with a major in physics in preparation for a career in education, research, or industry should consult with faculty in the Engineering Science and Physics Department (292-2480, Rm. 8-630). Students interested in these opportunities and who plan to complete the associate degree in four semesters should have successfully completed high school Pre-Calculus with a grade of 83 or higher or a C or higher in precalculus at MCC or another college, and successful completion of regents Physics and regents Chemistry.

PRE-FORESTRY: Students who plan to transfer and earn a baccalaureate degree at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, Syracuse, New York, in Environmental and Forest Biology, Chemistry, Wood Products Engineering, Forestry, Paper Science and Engineering, or Forest Engineering should consult with faculty in the Biology Department (292-2029, Rm. 8-228). Students interested in these opportunities and who plan to complete the associate degree in two years should successfully complete three years of high school mathematics through trigonometry, and high school biology and chemistry with a grade of C or higher. Physics and Mathematics 12 are recommended.

PRE-PHARMACY: Students who plan to transfer and earn a baccalaureate degree in the field of pharmacy should consult with faculty in the Chemistry/Geosciences Department (292-2425, Rm. 8-212). Students interested in this opportunity should select courses to make them eligible for consideration for admission into the three-year pharmacy program being offered at a pharmacy college in New York. Students should successfully complete three years of high school mathematics through trigonometry and have above average performance in Regents chemistry. Mathematics 12 is strongly recommended.
