Business Administration Associate in Science Degree for Transfer
PROGRAM CODE: 2S36799
The Business Administration Associate in Science Degree for Transfer, also called the Business Administration AS-T Degree, prepares students to transfer to CSU campuses that offer bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration. Ed Code Section 66746-66749 states students earning the Business Administration AS-T degree will be granted priority for admission as a Business Administration major to a CSU, as determined by the CSU campus to which the student applies. Business Administration prepares students to enter the job market with an ability to identify and solve business problems. Coursework provides a solid base of knowledge and understanding of fundamental business aspects, beginning with the basics, and emphasizing a foundation in marketing, advertising, management, human relations, finance, communication, writing, business law and international business. While a baccalaureate degree is recommended preparation for those considering business focused careers, the completion of this curriculum will demonstrate commitment to the business field and provide preparation for upper-division work. The Business Administration AS-T Degree requires a total of 29-30 units of required courses and restricted electives from the categories as indicated below.
The following is required for all AA-T or AS-T degrees, and there are no additional graduation requirements:
