The Associate in Arts in Philosophy for Transfer (AA-T) from Skyline College prepares students for transfer into the CSU system to obtain a degree in Philosophy or a related major. Philosophy degrees are often preparation for post-graduate studies in Philosophy, Law, and other disciplines. The study of Philosophy develops a well-rounded appreciation of the history of ideas and the rich tapestry of intellectual traditions from various cultures, and it provides excellent training in argument analysis and critical thinking.
The Associate in Arts degree for Transfer (AA-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in Philosophy or a related discipline at a CSU campus. Students completing the 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.
