Associate Degree for Transfer. A Degree with a guarantee.

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

The Associate in Arts in History for Transfer Degree is designed to enable students to explore a broad understanding of the social, political, cultural and economic events and forces that have shaped our nation’s past, present and future.   In addition to studying the history of the United States, history majors will study other civilizations and cultures gaining a broader perspective and better understanding of the contemporary world.   Through a diverse curriculum students learn to gather, synthesize, analyze and interpret historical evidence, building a strong foundation that prepares students to either transfer to a four year college or succeed in numerous career paths, such as teaching, law, business administrators, journalism and public service.
