2015-2016 College Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

General Associate of Science, A.S.


A complete listing of the courses fulfilling general education requirements for all system institutions is available on the TBR Web site (www.tbr.edu) under Transfer and Articulation Information.

Specific majors are not listed for the general Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees because baccalaureate degree program requirements vary at four-year institutions. General associate’s degree requirements provide a range of course options that permit students to design a program of study that closely matches the first two years of most baccalaureate degree programs.
