PROGRAM CODE: 1A42306

The Global Studies Associate in Arts Degree for Transfer, also called the Global Studies AA-T Degree, prepares students to transfer to CSU campuses that offer bachelor's degrees in Global Studies. Global Studies is an interdisciplinary program designed to increase knowledge and understanding of the processes of globalization and their impacts on societies, cultures, and environments around the world. The Global Studies program provides students with knowledge of critical issues that affect their lives and community, as well as the affairs of other cultures, societies, and nations. An understanding of the world’s social, political, economic, and natural systems and their increasing interdependence, along with an appreciation of the diversity of human culture, will supply the student with a strong background for working in a global economy, for living in a multicultural society, and for making intelligent decisions as global citizens. The Global Studies Associate in Arts Degree for Transfer is designed to prepare students to transfer to local California State Universities (CSUs) and other colleges and universities offering similar degrees. Students who complete the Global Studies AA-T will be ensured preferential transfer status to local CSUs for Global Studies majors and majors in related disciplines such as Global Politics, International Relations, International Studies, and Comparative Government. Ed Code Section 66746-66749 states students earning the Global Studies AA-T degree will be granted priority for admission as a Global Studies major to a local CSU, as determined by the CSU campus to which the student applies. This degree requires students complete 60 CSU transferable units including completion of CSU GE or IGETC and 37 units in the major with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Title 5 requires that students earn a grade of C (or "P") or better in all major coursework. There are no additional graduation requirements. This degree requires a total of 21-22 units.
