The Associate in Arts in Anthropology for Transfer Degree is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution as anthropology majors. In this program, the students gain exposure to the four subfields of anthropology (biological, archaeological, cultural, and linguistic anthropology).Students who successfully complete the A A-T in Anthropology earn specific guarantees for transfer to the CSU system: admission to a CSU with junior status and priority admission to a CSU campus and to a program or major in anthropology or a similar major. Students transferring to a CSU campus will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree. Students are required to complete 60 semester units that are eligible for transfer to a California State University, including both of the following: (1) The Inter-segmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education – Breadth Requirements and (2) 18–20 semester units with a grade of C or P or better in the major and an overall minimum grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 in all CSU transferable coursework.
