Surveying College Courses in Maryland 

The Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) at Catonsville, Maryland has a small surveying program conducted within the School of Applied and Information Technology (SAIT) which offers two (2) Associates in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees and three (3) certificate programs.  The A.A.S degrees are: the Civil Design Option and the Land Surveying Option.  The certificate programs are the Civil Design Certificate, the Minor Engineering Certificate and the Land Surveying Certificate.  All are excellent programs unto themselves, but one reaches further by its partnership with Towson University in Towson, Maryland.  Graduates with an A.A.S. in the Land Surveying Option can transfer directly into the Geography program at Towson and graduate with a Major in Geography and Land Surveying. The major in Geography and Land Surveying is based on a transfer articulation agreement between the Community College of Baltimore County at Catonsville and Towson University. Most students electing to major in Geography and Land Surveying will complete the A.A.S. degree in Land Surveying at CCBC-Catonsville prior to enrollment at Towson University. All surveying courses taken at CCBC will transfer. However, Towson University will only accept a maximum of 64 total units in transfer. Any general education requirements not completed prior to enrollment will be completed at Towson University. Students beginning the program at Towson University will complete their last year at CCBC to fulfill the requirements for the A.A.S. in Land Surveying.
