Associate of Science (AS-T) Track 1
There are two options for AS-T Degree students. Track 1 is designed for students interested in biology, environmental/resources sciences, chemistry, geology, or earth sciences.
The Science Pre-Major Associate of Science (AS-T) Track 1 degree program prepares students for transfer to science programs at four-year colleges and universities and will give students basic skills needed by scientists studying fields such as Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Geology, and Earth Science. Students study basic mathematical and scientific principles with an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking. Additionally, the program provides students with extensive laboratory experience. The curriculum also develops other job related skills such as communication, human relations and technical report writing. Credits earned with the AS-T degree at North Seattle College can be applied toward the first two years of a four-year bachelor’s degree in sciences such as Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Geology, and Earth Science.
Track 1 is popular with pre-professional health students interested in medical, dental or pharmacy school.
