​​​​​​​​About the STEM Pathway


STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. If you are interested in these topics, the STEM Pathway is for you. The STEM Pathway offers degrees and certificates for students who want to be doctors or dentists, pharmacists or physical therapists, students who want to design and build complex structures such as computer systems, machines, buildings, or who  plan on managing farms, starting wineries, or pursuing research in any field of science or mathematics. Students interested in teaching high school sciences should also consider this pathway. While some degrees and certificates end at YVCC, many of them transfer to four year colleges and universities.

As with all the pathways, you may choose to move to a different pathway at any time. If you so choose, an advisor can help you.
