Associate of Science (A.S.) in Science
Transfer Pattern – Astronomy

Semester Sequence


This is a full-time suggested 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 Electives:


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

  • Arts and Humanities 3 Credit(s).
  • Information Technology: CSIT 101  or CSIT 111  3 Credit(s).
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences 6 Credit(s). 

Program Requirements and Electives - 30 Credits


Program Electives:


Elective courses should be selected to meet transfer institution requirements.

  • ASTM 291 - 293 Independent Study in Astronomy 1-3 Credit(s).
  • Additional electives as needed.

Total Number of 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 Astronomy. 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.

Transfer Pattern Outcomes


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

  1. describe the features and natures of astronomical objects using astronomical terms and refer to positions, motions and characteristics of celestial objects;
  2. demonstrate how to incorporate astronomical information into effective written and oral communications;
  3. apply mathematical methods to the interpretation of astronomical data;
  4. solve problems involving astronomical topics by using astronomical data and scientific methods;
  5. explain how results from various observational technologies are used to develop theoretical models of celestial objects;
  6. observe celestial objects to draw conclusions about their natures; and
  7. solve calculus-based physics problems and perform physics experiments.
