Academics

Your academic journey starts here

We are thrilled that you are interested in Black Hawk College, and we look forward to guiding you through your academic journey. Depending on your academic goals, you can enroll in a career or transfer program. It is important for you to work closely with your academic and faculty advisors to ensure your coursework plan is on the right track toward your academic goals and graduation.


ON TRACK TO TRANSFER

If your goal is a bachelor’s degree, even if you are undecided about any major, earn an Associate in Arts (AA) or Associate in Science (AS) degree at BHC before you transfer to a four-year school. These two-year degrees include general education courses, but are tailored to your unique transfer plans.

ON TRACK TO A CAREER

If your goal is to get trained in a particular career with specific skills, take a look at our career programs. Earn either a degree (Associate in Applied Science / AAS) or a certificate. Courses generally apply directly to your career program and are, for the most part, not meant to work toward a higher degree.
