Liberal Arts & Sciences: Science
Associate in Arts Degree
Associate in Science Degree

Not sure what you want to study, but know that you love science? This is the program for you.

The Liberal Arts and Sciences curriculum is designed to provide the first two years of education for students planning to transfer to a four-year program leading to a bachelor's degree. Delhi's Liberal Arts program offers two degree options: the Associate in Arts (A.A.) or the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree.

The Math and Science: Science Option A.S. degree program is designed to provide the first two years of education for students who wish to continue their studies by transferring to a bachelor's program in science (biology, chemistry, physics, etc.) or a science-related field such as environmental conservation, healthcare, or science education. Students completing this curriculum will have an educational background that prepares them for professional careers in areas such as medicine, education, government, and industry. Required courses, together with careful selection of electives, give students broadly applicable knowledge in English, mathematics, science, humanities, and the social sciences, as well as course concentration appropriate to individual needs.

The science curriculum offers a broad range of courses foundational in pre-professional study. For example, students interested in health-related fields study Human Anatomy and Physiology as well as Microbiology, in conjunction with chemical and physical sciences. Such broad training, supported by core liberal arts courses, allows for transfer to a variety of healthcare-related programs (e.g., physical therapy, pharmacology, nursing, occupational therapy, pre-medicine, and science teaching). Students interested in environmental science can pursue an Environmental Studies option in preparation for careers and/or transfer in this field. This curricular option provides students with an issues- and field-based approach to the discipline. Courses in field and wildlife biology, environmental issues, and animal behavior give students a solid grounding for environmental study and for transfer.

All students must take at least one course from 7 of the 10 SUNY General Education subject areas (see the "General Education" section of the College Catalog for more detail). Students who plan to transfer to a SUNY four-year school are advised to take at least one course from all 10 subject areas.
