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

  

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*


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 of the courses must be a Diversity course.

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

 

Program Requirements and Electives - 30 Credits


Program Electives:


Choose 14 credits. Elective courses should be selected to meet transfer institution requirements.

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 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.

***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.
 

 

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 Geology. 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.

To receive an Associate of Arts degree from CCBC, a student must complete a minimum of 36 credits of General Education and a minimum of 60 total credits as indicated by the Arts and Science curriculum.

Transfer Pattern Outcomes


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

  1. relate the Earth’s dynamic processes to its composition, structure and surface features;
  2. describe how plate tectonic forces cause volcanoes and earthquakes;
  3. describe the crustal rock cycle;
  4. describe the processes involved in weathering and the resultant landforms;
  5. identify common minerals and rocks of the Earth’s crust;
  6. read and use geologic maps to interpret geologic events and history;
  7. use data to solve chemistry problems;
  8. solve calculus-based physics problems;
  9. perform geology experiments and write coherent laboratory reports.
