Where does my path start?


You will complete an Associate of Science-Transfer (AS-T) Track 1 at Shoreline.

Once you complete your Shoreline degree, you can transfer to a four-year school to earn a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Oceanography and Marine Sciences.

Oceanography and Marine Sciences are excellent preparation for graduate studies in Geology, Environmental Science, Oceanography, Physics, Education and Law.
