The Associate in Arts in History for Transfer (AA-T) from Skyline College prepares students for transfer to a baccalaureate institution to obtain a degree in History or a closely related degree. History degrees are often preparation for careers in education, law or the Foreign Service. Additionally, this degree develops key critical thinking skills and enhances the student's ability to participate fully and meaningfully as a citizen in a democracy.
The Associate in Arts Degree for Transfer (AA-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing an AA-T degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. Students transferring to a CSU campus that accepts the AA-T will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor's degree. This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or university or a college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a Skyline College counselor for further information on university admissions and transfer requirements.
A grade of "C" or better is required for each course applied to the major. Major course requirements may also be applied to meet general education requirements.
