*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.


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 Geography. 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. generalize the spatial and temporal distribution of specific physical processes, physical landforms, their environments and earth materials;
  2. identify and characterize specific physical environments and processes based on climate, topography, flora and fauna and the interactions that take place between physical systems;
  3. identify and characterize specific physical processes acting to change our environment;
  4. describe the relationship between geographical conditions and the development of human settlements, including aspects such as political, economic, religious, cultural and technological systems;
  5. compare and contrast regional societies with respect to geographical conditions;
  6. describe the dynamic processes shaping and affecting the oceans and marine populations;
  7. prepare maps using GIS software to visually represent data; and
  8. incorporate geographical information into effective written and oral communications.
