The Science Department also offers an Associate of Science degree, which is designated to ease transfer to four-year colleges and universities. In most cases, the credits you earn may be applied toward a bachelor's degree offered at a college or a university such as NMSU. In addition, students can enroll in these Science courses to fulfill the General Education course requirement in their given program/degree.
