This program is designed for students who wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree at a four-year institution, majoring in Geology or a related science.
According to the National Research Council, students should be able to demonstrate that:
■ Science is an evidence-based way of thinking about the natural world and understanding how it operates.
■ Science is a process with rules of operation that allow our understanding of the natural world to evolve.
■ Science is based on reproducible evidence and observations that contain uncertainties.
■ The sciences are related to each other, mathematics, and everyday life.
■ Science is driven by globalization, technology, and new instrumentation and measurement tools.
■ Scientific meanings of theory and law are different than popular meanings.
The Science/Mathematics AS at SCCC is designed for students who wish to transfer into 4-year Bachelor of Science programs. In September 2008, the governor and state legislature created a law that established a statewide transfer agreement for students transferring with a degree from a New Jersey community college to a New Jersey public four-year college or university. Students can now seamlessly transfer their academic credits from a completed community college Associate of Arts (A.A.) to a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or from a completed Associate of Science (A.S.) to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree program at New Jersey’s public four-year colleges and universities. Our Counseling & Advising Center can help you with transfer questions. More information on this opportunity is available at njtransfer.org.
