Areas of Study By Academic Division

The following sections of the catalog detail offerings by academic division: Arts and Humanities; Business and Computer Systems; English and World Languages; Health Sciences; Mathematics; Science, Engineering, and Technology; and Social Sciences and Teacher Education. All degrees and certificates, letters of recognition, and certification training outlines are described in these seven divisional sections.

Transfer patterns are designed to transfer primarily to University of Maryland system institutions; however, students may plan to transfer to universities and colleges throughout the nation. The college has numerous services for students preparing for transfer, such as transfer counseling, on-campus visits by transfer institutions, and extensive information available in Counseling and Career Services. Completion of a transfer pattern will result in the award of an associate of arts, associate of science in engineering, or associate of arts in teaching degree.

Career patterns are designed to enable students to gain immediate employment upon completing the associate of applied science degree, certificate, letter of recognition, or certification training. While these patterns are designed for entry into employment, some of the courses within them may be transferable to four-year colleges and universities.

To determine the possible transfer eligibility of a course, students are encouraged to use “ARTSYS,” the computerized transfer articulation system for the University of Maryland System, which is available in Academic Support and Counseling and Career Services as well as Admissions and Advising. Students are also encouraged to consult with the institution to which they are interested in transferring.
