Outdoor Adventure Leadership Transfer to Southern Oregon University

Associate of Science Degree

About the Program

The Associate of Science (AS) degree is based on a signed articulation agreement with Southern Oregon University (SOU). The program is designed for students transferring to SOU’s bachelor’s degree program in outdoor adventure leadership. Students must work closely with advisors in their areas of interest to ensure electives are appropriate.

The curriculum allows for 38-47 core credits within the major area. By completing all appropriate credits (including electives), students will fulfill required lower division coursework for transfer to SOU. Students should be aware, however, that if they transfer before completing this degree, their courses will be evaluated individually toward the transfer requirements of the college of their choice.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program learning outcomes for the Outdoor Adventure Leadership Transfer to Southern Oregon University degree are:

Demonstrate responsible wilderness ethics as defined by current industry trends.

Demonstrate excellence in technical skills with competence in safety and industry standards.

Demonstrate expertise in logistics and expedition planning.

Facilitate a quality program through the use of effective communication, appropriate relationships, and compassionate leadership.

Document a personal knowledge of demographic health changes and trends in chronic and acute diseases in the U.S. over the last 100 years.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined through the Placement Process. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies. In order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over 10 years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward core requirements.

Graduation Requirements

The Associate of Science degree will be awarded to students who complete all credits in this program with a grade of “C” or better. Certain required courses are also graded on a pass/no pass basis only. A grade of “P” for these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C” or better grade.
