The academic experience at the Community College of Baltimore County is very diverse, mainly because there are five campuses located in the Baltimore county area. CCBC is located in Catonsville, Dundalk, Essex, Hunt Valley, and Owings Mills. On each campus, every student is assigned an academic adviser to make the transition from high school to college run smoothly or to make the transfer student feel more at home. An academic adviser will set out the general requirements for a student's major. The areas of study that are available at CCBC include art, astronomy, criminal justice, environmental science, and even massage therapy. There are courses that are lecture only; however, the experience is still worthwhile.
Inside many classrooms are computers, while others are designed strictly for lectures. Either way, it isn't what's in the classroom that counts, but how the class is taught that makes the experience. In many environmental science courses, field trips are offered to give students a more hands-on experience. In every department, the professors are dedicated to their work and students. Even after leaving the classroom, students will learn something new by interpreting the lectures through real world experiences.
