A graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Occupational Safety and Health may work for a wide variety of employers in both private industry and government, wherever workplace safety is a concern. Employment opportunities exist in mining, manufacturing, petroleum extraction, government, insurance, and consulting firms. A student interested in a career in Occupational Safety and Health would take the following courses at Dawson Community College with the intention of transferring to a four-year institution offering the bachelor’s degree. DCC has an articulation agreement in Occupational Safety and Health with Montana Tech of the University of Montana, Butte.

The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans.  These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree. 

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC.  Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.

Take advantage of our 2+2 articulation agreements in Occupational Safety and Health - Montana Tech.
Attend two years at Dawson Community College and save money. Then move on to university seamlessly.
