Associate of Science
The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degree programs are transfer degrees designed for students who intend to continue their education after Belmont College. Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees do not have specific majors, but can be tailored to be applied to a number of different majors at the bachelor’s degree level at most four-year colleges or universities.
The Associate of Science (AS) degree is designed to prepare students for transfer to a four-year college or university and is the equivalent of the freshman and sophomore years of a bachelor of science degree or related program, including engineering, business, or natural sciences.
