Emphases:
The emphases listed below are suggested for students who want to transfer to a four-year program in these areas. They are NOT majors in which a two-year degree may be earned; the two-year degree major is Liberal Arts and Science - Mathematics and Science, A.S. Students should consult the catalog of their transfer institution as early as possible to determine additional requirements. If the transfer institution has a foreign language requirement, is it recommended that students try to fulfill it before transfer.

BIOLOGY: First year - BIO 111-112; CHM 111-112; MAT 131-132. Second year - BIO 205, 212; CHM 203-204; PHY 111-112. Students interested in majors within medical or related fields should consider substituting one of the following for BIO 205; BIO 107, 108, 113, 114, 213.

CHEMISTRY: First year - CHM 111-112; MAT 131-132; EGR 105-106. (For some transfer programs, PHY 111 - 112 may be more appropriate.) Second year - CHM 202, 203, 204; MAT 231-232.

GEOLOGY & EARTH SCIENCE: GEO 101, 114, 202; AST 113; One of the following two-course sequences - CHM 111-112, PHY 111-112, EGR 105-106; MAT 123, 131-132; CIS 143

MATHEMATICS: MAT 124, 127, 129, 131, 132, 220, 223, 227, 231, 232; CIS 143, 144.
