Associate Degree for Transfer. A Degree with a guarantee.

The Associate in Arts in Anthropology for Transfer (AA-T) Degree is intended to meet the lower division requirements for Anthropology majors (or similar majors) at a CSU campus that offers an Anthropology baccalaureate degree.

This degree focuses on the critical analysis of human beings from both a cultural and biological perspective. The diversity of humans is investigated through a time cross-culturally in terms of their behavioral adaptations as well as using the framework of evolution to understand biological adaptation. Students will gain a basic understanding of the various fields and sub-fields of the discipline of Anthropology through their elective choices.

In addition to the courses listed in the curriculum tab, the following additional requirements must be met for completion of the AA-T Degree in Anthropology:

  1. Completion of 60 CSU-transferable semester units.
  2. Achievement of a minimum GPA of at least 2.0 in all CSU-transferable coursework (some majors may require a higher GPA, students should consult with a counselor for more information).
  3. Completion of the 19-20 semester units in the major with a grade of “C” or better.
  4. Certified completion of the California State University General Education-Breadth (CSUGE) pattern; OR the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern

NOTE: Students are advised to check with the Counseling Department or Transfer Center for the courses accepted into the Psychology major at the CSU where they seek transfer.
