The AS degree in general science is designed to prepare deaf and hard-of-hearing students who are close to, but not fully ready for, direct entry into a baccalaureate-level program in the sciences. The degree is a pathway for completing the course work taken during the first two years of a BS degree program in the College of Science or the College of Health Sciences and Technology. This AS degree serves as a bridge program for qualified students based on academic transcripts, admission test scores, and other evidence that support a reasonable expectation of success in the baccalaureate program. By combining preparatory studies in math and English with baccalaureate-level science, math, and liberal arts courses, students can qualify to transfer as juniors into a BS program in biochemistry, biology, biomedical sciences, chemistry, or environmental science depending on the course work taken for the AS degree. Students acquire the foundational skills necessary for success in the scientific field of their choice as they also develop skills and knowledge in communication, critical thinking, problem-solving, and mathematics. This program is only available to students seeking admission to the National Technical Institute for the Deaf.
