The Associate of Science degree in Geology is designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university and pursue a Baccalaureate Degree Program in the Earth Sciences. The curriculum approximates the freshman and sophomore general education requirements of most four-year colleges and universities. As part of this degree program, students must complete the requirements of the Ohio Transfer Module in order to graduate.

Careers in the Earth Sciences are highly diverse and in global demand. They can be found at local, state and federal levels, in private industry, and in education. Natural resource sustainability, global climate change, natural hazard management, water supply issues, and contamination remediation are continuing to be pressing, global issues that require involvement from Earth Scientists. Earth scientists also play an important role in the development of environmental policies and regulations.
