Earth science courses offered at SCC are taken for a variety of reasons, to meet general education requirements, as electives, or just for interest and fun. Check the current SCC schedule of classes for this semester's offerings. For more information about any of these courses, please consult the SCC Catalog or either of the geology professors.
When trying to decide which course to take for transfer, check the college catalog of the four-year college or university you plan to transfer to before making your decision. If the college catalog indicates there may be restrictions on a course you are interested in, definitely check with a counselor before making your decision, not all CSU and UC campuses accept all courses.
Also, some colleges and universities always require labs in physical science classes, some only require labs for certain majors, and some do not require labs. If in doubt, take the lab.
How do these classes transfer?
These courses, or course combinations, have no prerequisites and meet the general education requirements for a physical science class with lab in either Plan B, section B1 or IGETC, section 5A. These courses are either 4-units or 4-units when combined.
