PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This program was developed for students who wish to create a program of study that will enhance and support their occupational interest with a specific focus on science and technology. Students will select and design their program after meeting with an advisor. This design will become a contract agreement.

This degree option was not designed for transfer; however, depending on the courses selected, it may meet the Massachusetts State Colleges and University general education requirements.
