Will any of these courses apply to my TESU degree?
#1
Hello,

First off if this is not allowed, I sincerely apologize. I've been stalking this forum for some time now and it has been invaluable to my journey to complete my degree. I am planning on enrolling in TESU's Account BSBA program in January 2018 but I'd like to knock out as many inexpensive classes as I can. Currently I am taking the following at NMJC:

Intermediate Algebra
Intro to Sociology
American History II

Before I register for Summer classes I would like to know how my previous credits would apply to TESU's degree. I will be also reaching out to TESU directly but I do not have my transcripts at this time. Here are my previous courses and their descriptions:

CC 11 - Classical Cultures
Introductory study of ancient cultures through close reading of a variety of texts; most sections will focus on Greece and Rome, but some may explore other classical traditions such as those of India, Mesopotamia or China. Attention to such questions as literary genre, material and performance contexts, gender, political institutions, religion, philosophy, models of culture and the creation of a classical tradition. Practice in close reading and communication by means of critical writing, class discussion and other methods, such as collaborative group work.

CC 21 - Knowledge, Reality and Values
Philosophy's distinctive ways of understanding and thinking about perennial human questions: "What can I know?"; "What is real?"; "What is the basis of moral judgments?"; Contemporary and traditional examples of philosophical analysis and criticism.

CC 23 - People, Power, and Politics
Introduction to social science concepts through the study of power, authority, and social organization in U.S. society. Emphasis on the interaction of government and civil society. Readings focus on primary documents concerning the role of social class, race, and gender in the construction of social and political inequality. (Not open to students who have completed Core Studies 3.)

CC 312 - Cmptg: Nat, Pwr, Lmt
The nature, power and limits of the computer and computing. The components of the computer. Information representation. Computer networks, the Internet, and the World Wide Web. The nature of algorithms, problem-solving, and computer programming. Feasibility and computability. Computer and network security and privacy.

CIS 5.2 - Int Cmptr Applctns
Introduction to the use of the computer in the home and office. Computer literacy. Word processing, database systems, and spreadsheets. Examination and evaluation of computer peripherals and software for personal computers

ENG 1 - English Composition I
Workshop in expository writing: strategies of, and practice in, analytical reading and writing about texts. Fundamentals of grammar and syntax. Frequent assignments in writing summaries, analyses, comparisons of texts, and such other expository forms as narration, description, and argumentation. Emphasis on writing as a process: invention, revision, editing.

ENG 2 - Composition 2
Writing-intensive seminar focusing on a topic chosen by the instructor. Provides students with an opportunity to explore a particular subject in depth and further develop skills of critical thinking, research techniques, and clear expression necessary for academic writing. Students should take English 2 directly after completing English 1. Topics include: The Fool in Literature; Reading the City; 1960s: Decade of Revolt; Novels of the Jazz Age; Cross-Cultural Writing and the Arts.

PHIL 8 - Race, Justice, and Equality
A philosophical examination of race and racism centered around the moral values of justice and equality. Topics addressed include race as a social category, racial identity, the nature of racism, race neutrality and race consciousness, multiculturalism, and the relationships among values such as fairness, equality, and well-being. Contrasting points of view on measures designed to counter racism, including civil disobedience, affirmative action, racial reparations, and race-based restrictions on speech.

PSY 11 - Introductory Psychology
An introduction to the major facts, principles, methods, and theories of psychology. Topics include the history of psychology, sensory and perceptual processes, learning and cognition, motivation and emotion, psychological development, clinical and abnormal psychology, and biological, social, and personality determinants of behavior.

PSY 20 - Introductory Child Psychology
Principal features of the psychological development of children. Lectures, discussions, class period observations.

TVR 165 - Indstry, Instit, Aud

Analysis of news, entertainment, advertising, and public strategies, as well as media impact, legal issues, and ethics.


Thanks very much for your time!

I was just wondering if you were going to complete or finish your AAS (Applied Science in Business)
As I looked at their webpage for more details, the majority of your classes fit this associates degree.
NMJC AAS Link: Academic Degrees - New Mexico Junior College

If you're not going for that, they have an AA and AS as well, you might want to finish your courses there.
Transfer everything into the BSBA Accounting program at TESU and get an evaluation.
You should get roughly or up to 60 credits out of that, it'll be like a block transfer.

If you have the time, check out the Beginners Guide and review the wiki.
You should create a spreadsheet with the courses you have completed or use an example made by dfrecore
Plug the courses you have completed and then you'll know what would be missing.

TESU will not do a block transfer unless you have a BA/BS, and then only for the Gen Eds. They will not do a block transfer from an AA/AS.

I thought about that but since I was looking for the quickest direct route to a BA. If I stick with only NMJC I'll be stuck with only taking a few classes each semester. My plan is to combine NMJC classes with a mix of Straighterline and Saylor throughout this year so when I get to TESU in January I only need about a year of coursework (12 classes).
