History

Associate of Arts for Transfer Degree (AA-T)

Requirements

The Associate in Arts in History for Transfer (AA-T) is a degree that provides a solid lower-division preparation for students who intend to transfer to a California State University (CSU) for a bachelor’s degree in History. This degree is designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU and guarantee admissions to a CSU. Although, students are guaranteed admissions, it is not to any particular campus or program in the CSU system. Students will be required to meet with a counselor for specific university major preparation at the college of their choice in order to facilitate a seamless transition. This coursework will satisfy the lower division Economics requirements at some of the CSU campuses. Information on which campuses accept this degree can be found at http://www.sb1440.org/

(30 Units, GE Plan) + All other West requirements for Associate Degree.
