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.

**Students should meet with the discipline coordinator to plan and select appropriate electives, based on the recommended electives for their intended major and transfer institution.

Program Outcomes

  1. recognize characteristics of lifelong learning: independent thinking, self-discipline, and ethical behavior;
  2. demonstrate the technological skills needed to advance academic pursuits at a senior institution;
  3. apply a set of analytical and problem-solving skills to real-world situations;
  4. demonstrate interpersonal skills that reflect an understanding of diversity and the need for teamwork; and
  5. communicate information to a variety of audiences using appropriate written, spoken, and/or visual methods.

Program Description


The A.S. degree program recognizes mastery in mathematics and/or science and is intended for transfer to Bachelor of Science programs at four-year institutions.
