Business Administration

Program Description

The Associate of Arts & Sciences degree programs are designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree program. The Associate of Arts & Sciences degree also prepares you to enter pre-professional programs in the areas of Dentistry, Law, Medical Technology, Medicine, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, and Radiologic Technology.

Program Requirements

Entry into the program requires the satisfactory completion of four (4) units of high school English, two (2) units of high school algebra, one (1) unit of geometry, one (1) unit of laboratory science, and one (1) unit of social science or their equivalent.  Deficiencies in these areas may be corrected by completing the appropriate developmental studies courses. Students are encouraged to check the mathematics requirements of the four-year college or university to which you plan to transfer to determine the appropriate courses to be taken at MECC, as well as to determine the transferability of electives. Students planning to transfer should schedule an appointment with MECC’s Transfer Services Counselor at 276.523.2400 ext. 324.
