Associate Degree for Transfer. A Degree with a guarantee.

The Associate in Arts in Philosophy for Transfer (AA-T) Degree is intended to meet the lower division requirements for Philosophy majors (or similar majors) at a CSU campus that offers a Philosophy baccalaureate degree.  It will provide a broad introduction to philosophy for those interested in building a foundation for an eventual Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy, or for those seeking a structured exploration of philosophy for other reasons.

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 Philosophy:

  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 18 semester units in the major with a grade of “C” or better.
  4. Certified completion of the California State University General Education-Breadth (CSU GE) pattern; OR the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) pattern.

Students are advised to check with the Counseling Department or Transfer Center for the courses accepted into the Philosophy major at the CSU where they seek transfer.  Students who are planning on transferring to a CSU are strongly advised to take PHIL 115 – Symbolic Logic to prepare for further study.
