Carolinas HealthCare System

Carolinas College Associate of Science in General Studies

Curriculum Overview

The Associate of Science in General Studies will be awarded to students who successfully complete 63 semester credit hours of coursework. This program provides students with a basic understanding of the biological sciences and an opportunity to integrate liberal arts with health care education. The healthcare programs at Carolinas College have a competitive admission process.

Students who are not accepted upon their first application to the program have the opportunity to take college-level coursework while enrolled in the associate of science general studies program. This enables them to complete courses which would later transfer with a change of track.

Students entering the AS program may modify their course sequence to best prepare them for a particular program in anticipation of a change of track. This program can also help students prepare for transfer into advanced programs at four-year institutions leading to degrees such as pre-medicine or pre-veterinary.
