Associate of Science (A.S.) in Science
Transfer Pattern - Meteorology

  

Semester Sequence


This is a suggested full-time schedule for a student who has completed any developmental course work and has no transfer credits. Refer to the College catalog for specific requirements in selecting General Education courses .



Fall Semester Year 1*


Spring Semester Year 1


Fall Semester Year 2


Spring Semester Year 2


 

General Education Requirements and Electives - 30 Credits


General Education Requirements:


General Education Electives:


(Choose courses in each category from the list of approved General Education courses . One of the General Education courses must be a Diversity course.) 

  • Arts and Humanities 3 Credits.
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences 6 Credits.
  • Information Technology - CSIT 101  or CSIT 111  3 Credits.

Program Requirements and Electives - 30 Credits


Total Credits Required for Degree: 60*


Notes


*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101  in the first semester at CCBC. This is a 1-credit class, and it does not count towards the number of credits required for a degree or certificate. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) for this requirement to be waived.

**In order to take PHYS 151 , students must have completed MATH 251  with a C or higher and done one of the following:

  • Completed high school Physics, OR
  • Completed PHYS 101  with a grade of C or better, OR
  • Received permission from the Physical Sciences department chair.

***In order to take CHEM 121 /CHEM 122 , students must have done one of the following:

  • Completed CHEM 107  and CHEM 108  with a grade of C or better, OR
  • Passed the Chemistry placement exam and completed or tested out of (ENGL 052 and RDNG 052) or ACLT 052, and MATH 083, OR
  • Received permission from the Physical Sciences department chair.
 

Transfer Pattern Description


This degree pattern is designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a baccalaureate degree with a major in Meteorology. Beyond the General Education requirements and options, this pattern should be considered in light of the requirements of the selected transfer institution. Students should consult with a transfer coordinator or an advisor for information about specific requirements.

Meteorology draws upon many sources for its material because of its attempts to describe processes and changes in the atmosphere. Some of the major fields of investigation include structure of the atmosphere, temperature-pressure-density relationships, heat transfer, moisture and precipitation processes, cloud dynamics, and severe weather processes.

Transfer Pattern Outcomes


Upon successful completion of this transfer pattern, students will be able to:

  1. relate global and local heat exchange processes to the hydrologic cycle and atmospheric dynamics;
  2. explain the adiabatic process, how it develops and its effect on the atmosphere and on different regions of the world; 
  3. explain how various types of storms develop;
  4. interpret meteorological charts to assess current weather and make predictions; 
  5. use data to solve chemistry problems; and 
  6. perform meteorology experiments and write coherent laboratory reports.
