Geology (AS)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The AS Geology program is a multi-disciplinary degree that includes coursework from areas of chemistry, physics, math, social science, humanities, and geology. This degree is designed to prepare students for transferring to a four-year BS (Bachelors of Science) or BA (Bachelors of Arts) Geology or Earth Science programs. For information on careers in the Geosciences please visit the Geology Program webpage.

Transferability depends on the four-year institution. If you are planning to major in geology at a four-year college or university, you will find MAT 201 - Calculus I (GT-MA1)  is the (lowest level) mathematics course in which the credits earned will count toward a BA or BS degree. If you are a student just entering and are not prepared to take MAT 201 , you will need to take the prerequisite course(s). Your choice of either algebra-based (PHY 111 /PHY 112 ) or calculus-based (PHY 211 /PHY 212 ) physics will depend on the degree program that you are transferring to after completion of the AS degree. All courses will count toward the AS degree. Additional courses may be transferable to one or more of the public four-year colleges or universities in Colorado. For specific information, please see your advisor.
