The Natural Sciences Concentration is designed for students who plan to transfer to
baccalaureate degree-granting institutions and wish to customize their general science
degree program. In addition to the General Education Requirements, students may select
21 credit hours of appropriate coursework in mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics,
environmental sciences, natural resources, and other approved sciences to complete
To maximize possible transfer of courses to senior institutions, students should select
a college/university as soon as possible and obtain a catalog from that institution.
Students planning to transfer should discuss their plans with an advisor at BRCC and
at the receiving institution to ensure maximum portability of credit hours. Students
can also access the Board of Regents master course articulation matrix online (regents.louisiana.gov)
to determine which courses are accepted between Louisiana institutions of higher education.
