The Associate of Science Degrees is provincial credentials offered by many institutions in the BC Transfer System. The associate degree is designed to provide an educational experience that prepares students for life as an educated person, and to lay a solid foundation for further study.
The associate degree curriculum comprises two years of university level study in a variety of academic areas. Students are required to complete a broad range of course offerings balanced with in-depth study in specific disciplines.
Since many students will continue their studies, the requirements are sufficiently flexible to enable students to complete the required prerequisites for upper level course work in their intended major. Students will be exposed to a program of study that seeks to develop:
-an interest in and curiosity about the world around them
-an understanding of the global context in which they live and work
-acceptance of the social responsibilities that come with the benefits of advanced learning.
