Associate in Arts for Transfer Degree (AA-T) - History



What will I learn?

The Associate in Arts for Transfer Degree (AA-T) in History is designed to provide students with an understanding of a diverse array of societies and how the historical process informed the content of world culture. Through the course work associated with the History AA-T, students will address questions of identity, knowledge, consciousness, intelligibility, communication, and meaning as they compass the broad disciplinary terrain of history.

Students who successfully complete the AA-T in History earn specific guarantees for transfer to the CSU system: admission to a CSU with junior status and priority admission to their local CSU campus and to a program or major in History 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) 18-20 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. Students are advised to consult with a Berkeley City College counselor and/or the Social Sciences Department Chair for additional information and to verify transfer requirements.

Program Learning Outcomes

Students who complete the program will be able to:

• Demonstrate knowledge of the historical process within particular fields of history and effectively link historical cause and effect.

• Apply historical methodology and critical thinking in order to analyze primary and secondary sources and historical arguments.

• Interpret the diverse historical forces which have shaped the past and inform the content of the present.
