Programs of Study

Associate Degrees You can earn an associate degree in a wide variety of academic areas at BCC. The college can only know and plan for your graduation if you com- plete a petition. It is to your advantage to get this done early, preferably as soon as you approach 30 units. What you have completed and what you need to complete will be comprehensively and clearly spelled out by the counselor.

An Associate of Arts degree requires a minimum of 18 units in the major and the Associate of Science degree requires a minimum of 20 units in the major.

In addition to the major requirements, students must:

  • complete 60 units;

  • complete 12 resident units at BCC;

  • earn an institutional and cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better; and,

  • complete BCC general education require- ments (See the Catalog for specific require- ments.)

If you plan to earn an associate degree and trans- fer to a four-year college or university, consult a counselor to ensure that you are taking appropri- ate courses.

Certificate Programs BCC offers a number of certificate programs aimed at preparing you for occupational employment. Certificates can be helpful in obtaining or upgrad- ing employment. The number of units required varies from program to program.

A student must petition through a counselor to obtain a certificate. Some of the course work in sev- eral certificate programs is sequential. Careful plan- ning is necessary to complete a program in two years.

In addition to completing required courses with a GPA of 2.0 or better, students must complete:

  • 12 units in residency

  • English 50 with a ‘C’ or better (or placement

eligibility for English 1A)


  • Math 101 or BADM51 with a ‘C’ or better (or placement eligibility for Math 50)

  • Computer literacy requirement: any one or more unit COMP or computer-oriented BUSI course; or equivalency credit through ACE/PONSI or other national certification program(s); or credit by examination; or demonstrated ability equivalent to any COMP or computer-oriented BUSI course in the catalog.

Students have the option of either selecting from the degree/certificate requirements currently in effect or the requirements in effect when they first enrolled at BCC, provided that they maintain enrollment with no more than an one-year break.
