Purpose: The Associate of Arts and Sciences degree program in Business Administration is designed for individuals who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree. The specialization in Outdoor Leadership is specifically for students wishing to transfer to a four-year college and complete a baccalaureate degree in outdoor recreation, outdoor leadership, parks and recreation, leisure studies or a related program.
Admission Requirements: In addition to the general admission requirements to the College, as stated earlier in this catalog, entry into the Associate of Science degree program in Business Administration requires as a minimum the satisfactory completion of the following high school units or equivalents:
- 1 unit of laboratory science
- 1 unit social studies
- 4 units of English
- 3 units of mathematics (including algebra or geometry)
Students who do not meet these requirements may need to correct such deficiencies in the developmental studies program, described later in this catalog.
Program Requirements: Achievement after graduation requires competency with other areas of knowledge such as the humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences in addition to those courses directly pertinent to business and outdoor leadership. The program is designed to provide students with an introduction to the tourism and recreation industry. Course work will focus on providing coverage of tourism, outdoor recreation, parks, leisure services, supervision and leadership, risk management, and resource interpretation and education. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, the student is eligible to receive the Associate of Arts and Sciences degree with a major in Business Administration with a specialization in Outdoor Leadership. Each student is urged to become familiar with the requirements of the major department of the four-year institution being considered for transfer. The student should also consult with his/her faculty advisor at SWCC concerning the selection of electives in order to facilitate the transfer of credits.
