History, AA-T

Humanities and Social Sciences Division
Degree A0334
History is a broad-based academic discipline with foundational coursework in both World History and The History of the United States, augmented with course options that add dimension and depth to the student’s understanding of the discipline—such as history courses outside of the Western World, courses in the humanities or social sciences (including history) that address any historically under-represented group or non-western subject matter fulfilling transfer level GE categories and courses in foreign languages.

The degree program requires students to critically analyze material from a variety of sources and to develop links and connections in abstracting fundamental meaning of historical data. The course distribution of the degree will expose the students to the complexity and diversity of the historical past, thus placing the present day issues and problems within a meaningful historical context.

To earn an Associate in Arts in History for Transfer a student must complete 60 semester units that are eligible for transfer to the CSU that consist of: IGETC pattern or CSU GE breadth and a major of at least 18 units.

Students earning an associate degree for transfer will not be required to complete any other local graduation requirements.
