Sociology AA-T Degree
The Sociology program provides students with a core curriculum that instills the knowledge, skills, and practices of sociological content, theory, and methodology. In addition to helping students meet general education and core requirements for transfer to an upper-level Sociology program, the courses are designed to help students understand the structure, processes, and functions of society, the key theoretical approaches and insights that inform sociology, and the role of social theory and research methods in understanding society. Further, the program seeks to foster critical and systemic thinking and increase self-knowledge and awareness of the diversity of the human condition.
The Associate in Arts in Sociology for Transfer, also called the Sociology AA-T Degree, requires students to complete 60 CSU transferable units including completion of CSU GE or IGETC and 18-19 units in the major with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Title 5 requires that students must earn a “C” or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis. There are no additional graduation requirements. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements. The Sociology AA-T is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing this degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major.
