Degrees & Certificates
Effective Fall 2019
The discipline of history helps to nurture an informed public and is, therefore, of vital importance to a democratic society. The program for the Associates in Arts in History for Transfer exposes students to the great historical arguments on these issues, and prompts students to think for themselves on these important topics. Students progressing toward the AA-T in History will learn the tools of critical thinking. They will be expected to apply their skills to a variety of historical narratives. The transfer degree is especially intended to assist students in transferring into the California State University System. Students completing the AA-T degree receive a guarantee of admission with junior status into the California State University System. CSU is required to grant priority admission for a student with this associate degree “to his or her local [CSU] campus and to a program or major that is similar to his or her community college major or area of emphasis, as determined by the [CSU] campus to which the student is admitted.”
- Completion of 60 semester units that are eligible for transfer to the California State
University, including both of the following:
- The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or CA State University General Education - Breadth Requirements.
- A minimum of 18 semester units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district.
- Obtainment of a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
AD-Ts also require the students must earn a C or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis. A “P” (Pass) grade is not acceptable grade for courses in the major.
