At Rose state we emphasize the excitement of discovery and the development of individualcreativity and critical reasoning skills. Students learn how living things work, how they interact with one another, and how they evolve. You may study cells under a microscope, insects in a rain forest, viruses that affect humanity, or plants in a greenhouse.
You’ll discover and understand the properties of organic and inorganic chemistry along with instrumental methods of analytic chemistry. Chemistry is a great background for pursuit of a health care career.
The Computer Science Associate Degree Program offers students technical and professional preparations for careers in computer science and transfers to four-year degree programs. Students will receive instruction in computer science core courses and supporting mathematics and science courses.
Learn the discipline of applying technical, scientific and mathematical knowledge to the design of materials, structures, machines, devices, systems, and processes. A solid foundation is provided in electrical science, materials, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics.
Students focus on the study of solid and hazardous wastes, air quality, ecology, and industrial hygiene practices. Life and physical sciences are also part of the program.
This program will allow students not only to earn general education credits in math, composition, the humanities, social sciences, and natural/physical sciences, but also to discover STEM areas of study that interest them. Explore this degree option which allows the blending of traditional areas such as biology and mechanical engineering into bio-mechanical engineering and astronomy and physics into astrophysics, as examples.
Use the disciplines of physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics to develop an understanding of the Earth and its systems. Students can specialize in geology or meteorology options.
The Mathematics Associate in Science degree program will provide students with a strong foundation in mathematical principles and concepts. The study of calculus and analytic geometry is supplemented with options in science, computer programming, differential equations, and statistics.
Students will learn the foundations of basic physics theory, including materials, electrical science, thermodynamics, and statics. You will study calculus and analytic geometry as needed to understand critical theories and principles.
Baccalaureate Track Nursing
The goal of the baccalaureate track nursing program is to provide students with most of the minimum requirements of a professional nursing school. You will have the science, mathematical, sociological and psychological foundation to transfer on to complete a bachelor’s degree in nursing.
This program contains subject matter usually included in the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy. You will develop a solid foundation in organic chemistry, physics, microbiology, zoology, and calculus.
Pre-Professional Health Care
The goal of this Associate in Science degree is to prepare students for additional study in medical or allied health fields. Options available include pre-medicine, pre- dentistry, and pre-physical therapy. Students will study a core science curriculum that will prepare them well for bachelor’s and advanced degree programs. Courses range from human anatomy to chemistry to microbiology, among many others.
The primary goal of the Technology Applied Associates degree is to prepare students for technologist and technician positions in government and industry. Students will gain hands-on knowledge and skills required to support electronic and mechanical systems and components.
