Environmental Science or Geology/Earth Science

EnviormentThe courses in this area will help prepare a student to transfer to a university to complete a bachelor’s degree in geology, earth science, or environmental science. This will prepare students for careers in areas such as conservation, natural resources, outdoor pursuits and environmental advocacy, law, research and education. If the student intends to complete a bachelor’s degree in education, he/she would be advised to take secondary education courses as well (see Education, Secondary in this section). DCC has an articulation agreement in Earth Sciences with MSU-Bozeman. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans.  These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC. Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.

Take advantage of our 2+2 articulation agreements in Education with MSU-Bozeman.

Attend two years at Dawson Community College and save money. Then move on to university seamlessly.
