Associate of Science Program

Compare 198 Associate of Science Programs 2017/2018

Master

Like Associate of Arts degrees, Associate of Science degrees are offered at community colleges and vocational schools and take two years to complete. Although both degrees require the student earn a specific amount of credits from general education classes (language arts, algebra, history, sociology and art), an Associate of Science degree demands that a student take additional classes that are focused on the sciences--biology, engineering, mathematics, physics, psychology or politics. These elective courses allow the student to begin specializing in select field while providing supplementary information that improves their chances of gaining employment in fields that require more skill than provided by an associate of arts.

What are the Benefits of Earning an Associate of Science?

Students electing to pursue an associate of science degree facilitate the transfer of credits from their community or vocational college into a bachelor's degree program at a university. They will also reduce tuition costs by taking science-oriented electives at less expensive two-year institutions.

How Much Does an Associate of Science Degree Cost?

Like A.A. degrees, tuition for A.S. degrees cost much less than tuition for a Bachelor's degree at a four-year university. Earning an Associate of Science degree at a community college typically saves students several thousand dollars on the total, final cost of their academic career.

How Will an Associate of Science Degree Improve Your Career?

While many students earn an A.S. with the intent of pursuing a Bachelor's or Master's degree, there are numerous jobs that students will be qualified to apply for immediately after completing an A.S. program. Most of these jobs pay higher wages than jobs requiring an A.A and include medical lab technician, veterinary technician, cyber security, database administrator or library information associate.

Why take an Online Associate of Science?

Pursuing an A.S. online is not only a convenient way of improving your earning capacity but also allows you to juggle family and work life without worrying about getting to class on time at a brick and mortar college campus.

Chemistry is a central branch of the physical sciences that focuses on the properties, composition, structure, and changes occurring in living and man-made matter. Chemists apply scientific principles, develop theories, and devise complex methods and techniques for probing the laws that govern the composition of elements and reactions between substances with a goal to create new or improved products and processes for practical use. They operate specialized instruments, lab equipment and computers to monitor, measure, and evaluate changes in matter. Chemists are divided into four main specialties. Organic chemists deal with the structure, properties, and reactions of carbon-based compounds, most of which are substances originally derived from living organisms. Their work is central to developing a myriad of commercial products such as drugs, cosmetics, detergents, fuels, plastics, and fertilizers. Inorganic chemists seek to understand the behavior and the analogues for inorganic elements, the compounds of non-carbon structure, including most of the metals and minerals, and how these materials can be manipulated and used in a practical way. Their discoveries have benefited the microchip, mining, ceramics industries, medical and pharmaceutical fields. Physical Chemists focus on the quantitative relationships between the chemical and physical properties of substances. They develop testing methods for identifying and predicting the fundamental physical characteristics of materials in a solid, liquid, or gas form and for formulating new products. Their work is instrumental for finding new energy sources. Analytical Chemists perform qualitative and quantitative analyses to examine the content of substances and measure the amount of each component... [-]
