Slide:

History is an academic discipline concerned with the manner by which people and institutions of all kinds have become transformed with the passage of time. In the study of history it is more important to learn the skills of finding, interpreting and relating historical information than it is simply to memorize historical data. Through the study of history, students can acquire the techniques of gathering and applying information to gain a perspective on the human condition.

TRANSFER MAJOR REQUIREMENTS in History are available in the Counseling Center. In all cases, students should consult with a counselor for specific transfer requirements. Positions for which four-year graduates in History are qualified include teaching, state and national park historian, historical archaeologist and government positions. There are broad areas in the job market where a liberal arts background is needed.

History for Transfer

AA-T Degree

History is a broadly based discipline that explores the human condition through its historical development. Courses explore a variety of regions and time periods, using both primary and secondary sources to examine the people, institutions, ideas and events of the past and present. By developing skills in critical thinking and expanding their understanding of cultural diversity, students will strengthen their understanding of the past and perspective on the future.

The Associate in Arts in History for Transfer degree (AA-T) prepares students to transfer into the CSU system to complete a bachelor’s degree in History. Students completing the Associate in Arts in History 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 History 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.
