The Associate in Arts in Art History for Transfer degree from Skyline College prepares students for transfer into the CSU system to obtain a degree in Art History or a closely related discipline. The degree promotes an understanding of art across time, cultures and geographic boundaries. Students are taught to apply fundamental art and art historical terminology and methodologies to analyze works, in order to articulate the historical, social, and aesthetic functions of art.
The Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or the Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing these degrees (AA-T or AS-T) are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Students transferring to a CSU campus that does accept the AA-T or AS-T will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor's degree (unless the major is a designated "high-unit" major). This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to university or college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.
