Transfer Science Home
The Associate in Arts Biology and the Associate in Science Chemistry transfer degrees are designed for students who are interested in earning a two-year academic degree. This degree is primarily intended for students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university with a major in the natural sciences, pre-med, engineering, or computer science.
The Transfer Science, Health Sciences career pathway at Las Positas College is designed to prepare students for transfer; however, completion of this Biology AA Degree also provides entry-level opportunities for the laboratory technicians in industry and the academic environment. This program fulfills typical lower-division requirements at four-year transfer institutions. Some variation in requirements may exist at a particular four-year college or university; therefore, it is essential that the student also refer to the catalog of the prospective transfer institution and consult a counselor.
The Chemistry AS Degree program prepares students for transfer to four-year institutions for continued study in the field of chemistry or for pre-professional studies for medical and dental programs. The program also satisfies lower-division requirements in chemistry for engineering and biology transfer majors. General Education courses should be selected carefully to meet the requirements of the intended transfer institution.
