Anthropology is the academic discipline concerned with the study of the biological and cultural development of mankind. The approach is comparative and holistic, focusing attention on the physical behavioral characteristics of humans, the range of their variations worldwide and the constants which cut across all human activity. Anthropological studies include people throughout the world since the beginning of human life.

Anthropology for Transfer

AA-T Degree

Anthropology is the study of humans, past and present. To understand the full sweep and complexity of cultures across all of human history, anthropology draws and builds upon knowledge from the social and biological sciences as well as the humanities and physical sciences. A central concern of anthropologists is the application of knowledge to the solution of human problems. Historically, anthropologists in the United States have been trained in one of four areas: sociocultural anthropology, biological/physical anthropology, archaeology and linguistics. Anthropologists often integrate the perspectives of several of these areas into their research, teaching and professional lives.

The Associate in Arts in Anthropology for Transfer degree (AA-T) prepares students to transfer into the CSU system to complete a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology. Students completing the Associate in Arts in Anthropology for Transfer degree and meeting the CSU minimum eligibility requirements are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Upon transfer, students will be required to complete no more than 60 units to earn a bachelor’s degree.

To earn the Associate in Arts in Anthropology for Transfer degree, students must complete 60 CSU-transferable semester units with a grade point average of at least 2.0, including:

  • completion of the major requirements with grades of C or better; and
  • certified completion of either the California State University General Education Breadth pattern, or the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum.

It is highly recommended that, prior to transferring, students complete courses that satisfy the CSU United States History, Constitution and American Ideals graduation requirement. In all cases, students should consult with a counselor for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.
