Most four year programs in forestry are at universities out of the state of Kansas. For example, there is a good one in Wyoming. Out of state tuition is quite high, so it makes good financial and economic sense to spend 2 of those years at DCCC, where the class size is small, the tuitions extremely reasonable, where there is individual help available from instructors, and where the science department offers all the course work needed! Please consult the suggested program of study outlined in the full catalog. For individual course descriptions and their prerequisites, see the full catalog also.
A 2 or 3-hour per week lab component accompanies each chemistry, biology, and physics course. DCCC has all the required lab equipment and up-to-date facilities needed for producing lab-competent students who are ready to transfer to a university with sufficient hands-on experience.
This catalog contains the curriculum information a student needs in planning his or her studies at Dodge City Community College. All students need to become familiar with the language of the college catalog and the necessity of planning a sequence that will provide either a one-year certificate or a two-year degree. Advisors are provided to assist students in planning their academic program. As a student, please make sure that you consult your advisor for guidance in planning a program of study. Students are ultimately responsible for assuring that their academic program meets the requirements for graduation and/or transfer to another degree granting institution.
