Program description

Philosophy Associate in Arts Degree for Transfer

An Associate in Arts in Philosophy for Transfer is designed for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. An Associate in Arts in Philosophy for Transfer is a great way to develop critical and creative reasoning skills, enhance an ability to read complex materials with comprehension, and improve communication skills. These assets will be valuable as a transfer student to a four-year institution, whether you major in philosophy or some other field, and will enhance your preparation for a wide range of career opportunities. To earn the Associate in Arts in Philosophy for Transfer, students must complete a maximum of 60 required semester units of CSU-transferable coursework, including either the CSU-GE Breadth or IGETC requirements and 18 semester units within the major. Students must maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA, including grades of C or higher in each course taken to fulfill the major. Local graduation requirements are not required for the transfer degree.
