Associate of Applied Science Degree

The associate of applied science degree with a focus in health sciences provides students with a foundation in basic and health-related sciences through a diversified curriculum, allowing students to explore courses unique to health-related disciplines.  The curriculum provides a flexible means to explore health content areas of interest and is useful to students working toward acceptance into a limited enrollment program at MCCC, such as nursing or respiratory therapy.  The AAS-Health Sciences degree may also serve as a foundation for transfer to a college or university offering a bachelor’s degree in the applied health sciences area.

Transfer Information
