We offer a wide selection of math and science courses, most with strong lab components. General Science can lead to virtually any job requiring a general science background, from medicine to research or teaching.

What's an Associate Degree?

An associate degree is a two-year academic program made up of 20 university-level courses. It is a stand-alone provincial credential you can list on your resume, as well as a good option to consider if you plan to continue your education to complete a university degree.

Camosun offers Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees. Because an associate degree programs provide some flexibility with course choices and scheduling, you can study full-time or part-time, and potentially year round.

Camosun's academic advisors are available to help you understand how to choose the right courses to meet your educational goals. With this assistance, you will be able to make informed choices to ensure the courses you select will be usable for the specific university program you'd like to pursue.
