Program description

Social Justice Studies General Associate in Arts Degree for Transfer

Social Justice Studies was created as an “Area of Emphasis” Associates Degree for Transfer (ADT). This ADT includes Programs in Cultural or Ethnic Studies and Women’s Studies, and is designed to give students a broad background in the histories of various racial and ethnic groups, and the contemporary challenges faced by these groups in our society. Social Justice is the basic principle that all members of a society are entitled to equal rights and opportunities, and Social Justice Studies seeks to examine existing inequities, particularly as they relate to race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality. The Social Justice Studies ADT is designed to transfer into the CSU system, and can be used as the foundation for a Bachelor’s Degree in the following areas: American Indian Studies, African American or Africana Studies, American Studies, Asian American Studies, Chicana and Chicano or Mexican American Studies, Comparative Ethnic Studies, Gender Studies, Women’s Studies, Labor Studies, and some Sociology Programs. To earn the Associate in Arts in Social Justice for Transfer students must complete at least 60 required semester units of CSU-transferable coursework, including either the CSU-GE Breadth or IGETC requirements, and at least 18 units within the major. Students must maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA, including grades C or higher in each course taken to fulfill the major. Local graduation requirements are not required for the transfer degree
