are three ways to earn a geology degree at SCC.
There is the Associate in Science, Geology for Transfer Degree (32044),
or the Associate in Science, Science Degree Geology Emphasis (11953), or the
Associate in Science, Geology Degree (11934).
who wish to major in geology at a four-year college or university and become
professional geoscientists should complete either the Geology for Transfer
degree (32044) or Science Degree Geology Emphasis (11953). The degree requirements for both are similar,
however successful completion of the Geology for Transfer degree guarantees the student acceptance to a California
State University campus to pursue a baccalaureate degree in geology or a
related field. The Science Degree
Geology Emphasis does not.
Geology Degree (11934) is a good option for students who wish to complete a
minor in geology to accompany a baccalaureate degree in another subject such as
environmental studies or teaching but is not adequate preparation to transfer
as a geology major because it lacks the necessary mathematics preparation.
