Digital Cinema Transfer to Southern Oregon University

Associate of Science Degree

About the Program

This 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 its baccalaureate degree program in Digital Cinema. Students completing this degree will meet the requirements for the foundation courses within the Digital Cinema degree requirements. Students must work closely with advisors in their areas of interest to ensure electives are appropriate.

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 Digital Cinema Transfer to Southern Oregon University degree are:

  • Utilize the correct tools and technology to create visual messages.
  • Apply cultural and human factors to editorial decisions.
  • Demonstrate basic business practices and trade ethics related to film.
  • Organize video projects and work productively in teams.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to take a placement test 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 levels as determined by placement scores.

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 five 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 a minimum of 90 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.

This guide lays out an optimal path to graduate in two years as you prepare to transfer to a four-year Oregon college or university. Please meet with an advisor for any questions about alternate classes in any given term. When transferring to a four-year Oregon state college or university, one of the following options must be met as a requirement for admission:

  1. Two years of the same high school-level world language
  2. Two terms of college-level world language (may be first-year world language, which can be used as elective credits)

This is for students who have graduated from high school or completed a high school equivalency program in 1997 or after. Additionally, if students intend to complete a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree at a four-year school, they must complete two years of a college level world language regardless of when they graduated from high school or an equivalency program. Completing the first year of the college language sequence in terms 4-6 at RCC sets students up for the second-year sequence when they transfer. Students should inquire with their intended receiving institution for world language requirements.

Where zero credits are listed in the prerequisites, students may place into a higher-level(s) based on designated placement score(s). Note, some prerequisites may be required for graduation. Please consult an advisor with any program completion questions.
