Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education is an approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real world problems in the above areas. The Meta Major: STEM Associate of Science (AS) degree allows students to explore the concepts from the four aspects of STEM education.

The goal of this program is to give students a strong STEM curriculum foundation, which enables them to build on and transfer to a four year institution. This transfer program will also enhance skills and competencies needed in our technology-dependent world. Students who are interested in courses related to science, technology, engineering or math but are unsure of a specific career in a STEM field are encouraged to declare this program of study.
