    Curricular Outcomes

    At the completion of this curriculum, students should be able to:

    • Identify and interpret laws specific to our industry
    • Demonstrate physical, cultural and destination geographic knowledge

    The following plan of classes is a guide to prepare students to pursue a Bachelor of Science in business administration at Portland State University. To prepare for such a degree and at the same time meet MHCC degree requirements, follow one of the transfer degree options on pages 10-19 of the printed catalog.

    Students receiving financial aid must be seeking a certificate or degree and following official MHCC certificate or degree requirements.

    Admission and degree requirements vary among colleges and universities. Students are advised to:

    • Contact the transfer university to confirm specific admission/major/degree requirements.
    • Consult with a faculty adviser or the MHCC Academic Advising and Transfer Center early to develop an educational plan.

    Note: Community colleges do not award transfer degrees in a subject area, but do award an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree, an Associate of Science Oregon Transfer – Business degree or an Associate of Science degree.

    Students may transfer to other institutions such as the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, Washington State University, Eastern Oregon University and others. These institutions may require different courses.
