Economics Associate in Arts Degree for Transfer
PROGRAM CODE: 2A36961
The Economics Associate in Arts Degree for Transfer, also referred to as the Economics AA-T degree, prepares students to transfer to CSU campuses and other colleges/universities that offer bachelor's degrees in economics. Ed Code Section 66746-66749 states students earning the Economics AA-T degree will be granted priority for admission as an economics major to a local CSU, as determined by the CSU campus to which the student applies. The Economics AA-T focuses on the systematic study of the production, conservation and allocation of resources in conditions of scarcity, together with the organizational frameworks related to these processes. Coursework includes instruction in economic theory, micro- and macroeconomics. This degree requires a total of 21-23 units.
The following is required for all AA-T or AS-T degrees, and there are no additional graduation requirements:
- Completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:
- The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education – Breadth Requirements (for admissions to CSU, it is necessary that the students meet the "Oral Communications" requirement when using IGETC for AA-T or AS-T).
- A minimum of 18 semester units or 27 quarter units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district.
- Obtainment of a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
- ADTs also require that students must earn a C or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis. A P (Pass) grade is an acceptable grade for a course in the major only if the P is defined to be equivalent to a C or better.
