Why it’s Smart to Start your Degree at a Community College

You’ve decided what you want to study and major in at college. Why not get a leg up on your classmates in your first two years of college by choosing a transfer major at a community college? Starting your education in a transfer major can give you a lot of advantages.

What is a Transfer Major?

Transfer majors are degree programs that you can take at a community college that will help get you experience from the beginning in the field you want to study. Why not get the classes that you need working towards your degree and help prepare you for the classes that you will take after you finish at a community college?

You will take your general education classes as well as getting a jump start on the classes that are geared towards your specific major. You already know what you are interested in, why not start your path early?

Ellsworth Community College and Marshalltown Community College offer a variety of Associate of Arts and Associate of Science transfer degrees.
