Top Associate Degrees in Molecular Sciences

An associate degree will typically require about two years of study at the undergraduate level. There are many disciplines within the humanities and the sciences that may be available in this type of program.

What is an associate degree in molecular sciences? Molecular sciences study structures at the molecular level in order to create solutions to a wide range of problems. The sciences studied may include biology, chemistry, molecular biology, biochemistry, physics, genetics, environmental science and nanoscience. The first two years of study in this discipline will typically cover the basic sciences, as well as the fundamentals of research techniques. Although specialization may not be possible until later, there may be some options early on, such as zoology or botany.

A two-year degree in molecular sciences can prepare students to continue on to many different scientific undergraduate programs. It also often helps to make them more marketable when seeking employment.

As with any other degree, the cost may depend on where you choose to study and the specific program in which you enroll. If you are seeking to reduce your cost, you may be able to find an online program that can help.

Many careers in molecular sciences will often require a minimum of a four-year degree. However, there are some research technician positions that may be available after two years of study. These will normally be in some type of research laboratory. Industries that hire graduates in molecular sciences include medicine, pharmaceuticals, genetics, education, agricultural, forensics and food. Private companies, government departments and academic institutions all hire molecular scientists.

The study of molecular sciences can be a gateway for understanding the world around you in greater detail, as well as for solving some pressing problems in the world.

The AP degree programme in Chemical and Biotechnical Science is a 2½-year full-time Higher Educational programme which qualifies our graduates for key functions within a number of trades and industries. Typical areas of work include control laboratories and research and development laboratories within the manufacturing sector, and at universities and other research institutes.

Our graduates, the chemical and biotechnical analysts, are qualified for planning, managing and implementing analytical work and results within both chemical and biotechnical areas.

The programme is theory-based and job-oriented, i.e. it aims to qualify students to be able to solve practical problems with an analytical basis. Theory is constantly targeted towards practical application in the industry. A completed programme gives access to and credits for further studies in Denmark as well as internationally.... [-]
