2018-19 Business Transfer to SOU Grad Guide (PDF)

Associate of Science Degree
Major Code: 240101L
Courses for this Program

About the Program

The Associate of Science degree (Business) has been developed with the cooperation and support of Southern Oregon University (SOU). The degree is fully articulated with SOU’s Business program and allows students to transfer directly as juniors and to be admitted into the program with no loss of credits to pursue a bachelor’s degree. The program offers an excellent balance of business and general education courses that support advanced study in the field of business. Students should note that Associate of Science is the only designation that is recorded on their transcripts and printed degrees.

Students should contact the SOU School of Business early in the first year of the program to be advised about additional requirements and procedures for admission to the school or program. Students transferring to SOU will be required to complete BA-201 at SOU during the first quarter. Students should be aware that if they transfer before completing this degree, courses will be evaluated individually toward the general education requirements in effect at SOU.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program leaning outcomes for business programs are:

Business Ethics: Demonstrate knowledge of ethical, legal, and socially responsible business behavior, while maintaining high levels of personal and professional integrity in today's rapidly changing multi-cultural, team-oriented business environment.

Communication/Information Literacy: Develop and deliver professional oral and written communications (using technology) that are appropriate to the topic, audience, and situation.

Critical Evaluation/Decision Making: Demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving skills by identifying, understanding, and applying basic theories, terminology, and practices related to each functional area of business.

Interpersonal Skills: Develop the interpersonal ("soft") skills necessary to build and maintain effective working relationships with internal and external business stakeholders.

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 by the results of their placement assessment.  In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

In order to ensure coursework is current, program courses over 10 years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward course requirements.
