Area of Concentration in Earth Science Program Description
The Associate of Science (A.S.) in Arts and Sciences Transfer is an existing degree that seeks to add an Area of Concentration (A.O.C.) in Earth Science. <br> <br>The collection of pre-existing courses at AACC that make up the Earth Science Area of Concentration, such as General Oceanography, Fundamentals of Weather and Physical Geology, are already being taught at the college. The existence of the Earth Science Area of Concentration at AACC will help our students more readily find a pathway to transfer to a four-year institution in a wide range of majors. This is similar to existing Areas of Concentration at AACC: Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Physics, and Plant Science. <br>
