What will I learn?

Berkeley City College’s English AA-T serves students with a wide variety of goals, including transfer to UC, CSU, or other four-year institutions. Students intending to transfer to U.C. Berkeley with the English major can complete all of the lower-division major preparation coursework at BCC (English 17A or B, 85A, 85B, and 85C). They will learn high-level skills in essay composition and literary analysis.

Students who successfully complete the AA-T in English earn specific guarantees for transfer to the CSU system: admission to a CSU with junior status and priority admission to a CSU campus and to a program or major in English or a similar major. Students transferring to a CSU campus will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor’s degree.

Students are required to complete 60 semester units that are eligible for transfer to a California State University, including both of the following: (1) The Intersegment General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education – Breadth Requirements and (2) 22 semester units with a grade of C or P or better in the major and an overall minimum grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 in all CSU transferable coursework

• Write well organized, well developed, effective, well edited, logically sound, and clear essays.

• Apply active reading strategies in order to critically analyze texts.

• Effectively analyze literature fiction, poetry, drama, and creative non-fiction in light of historical context, critical theories, and formal elements.
