Social Justice Studies-Gender Studies - Associate in Arts for Transfer
The Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T), Social Justice Studies-Gender Studies is a dynamic interdisciplinary field of study that examines our diverse human experiences and identities from a social, psychological, historical, political and economic perspective. From an intersectional, feminist, transnational, LGBTQ and social justice framework, we investigate how assumptions about Gender Studies shape our culture, institutions, daily lives and social interactions. Through student initiated research and community service projects students develop skills to recognize, confront and to find creative solutions to social injustice in our communities.
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.
