Program Overview

The Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics pathway is for those students who anticipate pursuing baccalaureate degrees in STEM areas. In addition to the specific sciences (e.g. biology, chemistry, physics) and mathematics, this pathway prepares students to pursue professions in technology or engineering.

Technology and Engineering cover a broad range of careers, ranging from healthcare to electronics, from work in research laboratories to work in information technology. The flexibility of the Associate in Arts degree allows 19 elective credits. Up to sixteen of those credits can be from occupational and/or professional courses; allowing a student interested in STEM to augment their studies with courses from our many technical programs at Northland, particularly those in healthcare, computer networking, transportation, architecture, and/or construction.
