AA&S Degree in Arts and Sciences - Sustainable Science

Associate of Arts and Sciences
Rappahannock Community College

The Associate of Arts and Sciences Transfer Degree/Sustainable Science Specialization Program is designed for persons who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree. The specialization courses fulfills the laboratory science requirement and provides education in basic science and laboratory techniques. The specialization focuses on the modern challenge of introducing ways to apply chemical and biological knowledge and techniques for less toxic, less waste producing outcomes in the environment requiring the study of the interrelationships of science, technology and the human world. By selecting appropriate electives, students should be able to complete the lower division requirements for a variety of baccalaureate majors. Examples of majors to which this program may prepare students for transferring are Chemistry, Environmental Science, Ecology, Biology, and Mathematics. In order to be assured that courses transfer to meet lower division requirements at the specific institution the student plans to transfer to and the major anticipated, students should consult their academic advisor to schedule their courses. Students are also encouraged to investigate guaranteed admission agreements (GAA), available for many colleges and universities in Virginia, contact their selected college's admissions office, and consult their selected college's transfer guide if one is available. Counselors and academic advisors can assist with locating these resources.
