Economics - Associate in Arts for Transfer
The Associate in Arts in Economics for Transfer (AA-T) degree will prepare students with the strong foundation necessary for pursuing studies at the university level in various careers in the fields of banking, inventory management, academia and government service. Career options include economist in the private or public sector, financial analyst, controller, treasurer, marketing manager, production control specialist, inventory control manager and business analyst. The AA-T in Economics is intended for students who plan to complete a baccalaureate degree in Economics or a related field of study at a California State University (CSU). Students who complete this 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 in Economics will be required to complete no more than 60 semester units after transfer to earn a baccalaureate degree.
To be awarded the Associate Degree for Transfer, students must have the following:
- Completion of 60 CSU transferable semester units.
- A minimum of at least 2.0 GPA in CSU transferable courses (note that a higher GPA may be required in some institutions).
- Completion of at least 18 semester units in the major with a grade of “C” or better. A “P” (Pass) grade is also an acceptable grade for courses in the major if the course is taken on a Pass/No Pass basis.
- Certified completion of the CSU General Education-Breadth (CSU GE-Breadth) requirements, or completion of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) for CSU requirements.
