Program description

History Associate in Arts Degree for Transfer

FFC offer a wider selection of History courses than most community colleges, covering nearly all regions of the world and time periods ranging from ancient to modern, and everything in between. Knowledge of History is essential to a good college education, and is an important tool for students to understand themselves and their world.

History is our changing perspective on the past. Historians attempt not only to understand the causes and significance of human actions in the past but also to interpret those past actions to others, through teaching, publications, lectures, exhibits, documentaries, and conversations. Knowledge of history provides insight into human nature, enhances our understanding of the present, and guides choices for the future. The Associate in Arts in History for Transfer degree is designed for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. To earn the Associate in Arts in History for Transfer degree, students must complete 60 required semester units of CSU-transferable coursework, including either the CSU-GE Breadth or IGETC requirements and 18 units within the major, with a minimum GPA 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. Local graduation requirements are not required for the transfer degree.
