Program Description

What is S.T.E.M.?

SFCC’s S.T.E.M. Pathway serves students looking to careers based in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, providing them with the opportunity to transfer to their chosen university as major-ready juniors. Supported by an array of courses that includes calculus-based Physics, Chemistry through a full year of Organic Chemistry, Mathematics through Differential Equations, Statics, Dynamics and similar major-based courses in the Life, Physical and Computer Sciences, students can embrace the benefits of our emphasis on access and quality in instruction while building a solid foundation for the classic S.T.E.M. baccalaureate degrees. For those students looking for employment immediately after completing an SFCC program, we offer a 2-year degree in Information Technology which can lead directly to employment and to a 4-year Applied Baccalaureate degree from SFCC in Information Systems and Technology or Cyber Security. Eligible students may participate in the Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement (MESA) program.
