Many courses include hands-on practical experience and/or opportunities for work experience in local industry and business.

The student, in consultation with a counselor, should choose science courses to meet his or her program, transfer, or general education requirements. The Counseling Center also has information regarding science requirements for transfer to other four-year institutions.

Note to Transfer Students:
If you are interested in transferring to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor’s degree in this major, it is critical that you meet with a CRC counselor to select and plan the courses for your major. Schools vary widely in terms of the required preparation. The courses that CRC requires for an associate’s degree in this major may be different from the requirements needed for the bachelor’s degree.
