In keeping with the current trends in American higher education, Butler County Community College has adopted a flexible program for the Liberal Arts (Transfer) Curriculum. The programs are designed to encourage the development of attitudes, values, and social skills that will enable students to enjoy lives that are individually satisfying and which enable them to play constructive roles in their community and society.

Students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university are responsible for acquainting themselves thoroughly with the requirements of that institution. Students must plan their programs at Butler County Community College so that they can make the transfer without loss of credits. Students are also responsible for designing their programs so that they meet stated degree requirements in the time limits that they desire. BC3 participates with a number of four-year colleges and universities in articulation agreements designed to assist students in preparing for transfer to the senior institutions. BC3’s transfer counselors can provide additional information to interested students.

All Liberal Arts programs consist of four parts: (1) the core, taken by all students; (2) required courses; (3) selections made according to the requirements of each program from each of the three groups of courses; and (4) electives, which may be any credit course offered by the College.

The three groups from which selections are made are Humanities (Group I), Social Sciences (Group II), and Natural Sciences (Group III). Courses taken to meet program requirements (required courses) may not be counted toward meeting group requirements. Courses which fulfill the Group I, II, III requirements may differ depending on the individual program. Students should consult curriculum planners or their advisors to determine which courses satisfy the specific group requirements. Superior students are advised of the opportunity to take courses through Independent Study (courses taken by appointment or on an individual, tutorial basis).
