Associate in Science (AS)

Associate in Science degrees are often completed in two years at a community and technical college before moving on to earn a bachelor's degree at a four-year college. By earning your Associate in Science degree, you demonstrate that you have learned the basics of higher education, usually referred to as "general education," without needing to declare a specific major or course of study. The Associate in Science degree program gives a liberal arts and sciences background, but keeps an emphasis on math and science. Students going into business, engineering, or agriculture are encouraged to earn an Associate in Science degree. An associate's degree is a good first step to take on your road to an education. You will emerge from Maysville Community and Technical College confident of your direction.
