Math and Science

Program Goals Statement

The Liberal Arts and Sciences program provides a comprehensive and rigorous foundation for transfer to a Bachelor of Arts or Science degree in the liberal arts disciplines or to professional studies in education, law or medicine. The program values lifelong learning for success of the individual as well as the community.

Program Information

Academic and transfer advisors assist students in selecting courses to fulfill program requirements and general education requirements at senior institutions to ensure a smooth transfer.

Recommendations

Lab science courses may also require a year of high school lab science or CHM 090 as a prerequisite.

After Bristol

Bristol participates in the statewide MassTransfer program and has developed many program-to-program transfer articulation agreements which guarantee admission and credit transfer.
