The Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts with a Concentration in Science is designed for students who are interested in a science-related career. Courses in the Science Concentration prepare students for further study in biology, biotechnology, bioinformatics, microbiology, biomanufacturing, environmental science, forensic science, genetic counseling, chemistry, veterinary science, and premedical studies. This program provides opportunities for students to explore a range of interests and apply scientific thinking in a wide variety of fields. For example, a student interested in forensic science could take biology, chemistry, forensic psychology, statistics, and an analytical writing course to prepare for further study in the field. This program enables students to smoothly transfer to four-year degree programs to advance their knowledge and career opportunities.
The AA in Liberal Arts-Science Concentration provides students with opportunities to explore the sciences along with other academic fields that are inherently integrated with science. Students who are interested in transferring to BA/BS programs in biology or health science will be advised to take the traditional sequence of science and math courses complimented by study in the gamut of other liberal arts courses. Students who are interested in science but unsure of the specific sub-discipline in which they might want to work or pursue further study will work with an advisor to choose courses that allow them to explore their interests in the sciences as well as other areas in the liberal arts.
Liberal Arts at River Valley caters to each students’ passions to help them succeed in the job field or in their next academic steps.
