Life Science Degree
The A.S. in Life Science is designed to outline the freshman and sophomore years of study for students who plan to transfer to four-year colleges and universities in a variety of programs in the life sciences. The major offers several advising tracks for students:
- Environmental Science
- Pre–Professional (Medical, Dental, Nursing, Veterinary Medicine, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, etc.)
The Pre–professional studies track is actually more of an advising track than a major. At the university–level, pre–professional students normally choose a specific major such as biology or chemistry.
Eastern's A.S. in Life Science provides an excellent foundation for students who wish to pursue careers in fields such as biology, chemistry, medicine, health, nursing and environmental services. Those who wish to enter the workforce immediately may find entry-level positions in laboratory research, allied health, environmental services and more.

Tuition and fees at Eastern Oklahoma State College are among the lowest in the nation. Plus, Eastern offers a variety of institutional scholarships, as well as science-related scholarships for students who demonstrate high academic qualifications and financial need.
