What will I learn?

Students who successfully complete the AA-T in Political Science 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 Political Science 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 Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education – Breadth Requirements and (2) 18-19 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.

Note: Although it is possible to fulfill the requirements for the Associate Degree for Transfer by completing the IGETC for UC pattern, admission to CSU requires completion of an Oral Communication course (IGETC Area 1C; CSU GE Area A-1); therefore, students who plan to transfer to CSU should complete this course as part of their GE or elective units.

Program Learning Outcomes

Students who complete the program will be able to:

• Define the core concepts of political science (government, regime, state, institutions, sovereignty, constitution, democracy, authoritarianism, and globalization).

• Discuss the constitutional, institutional, cultural and institutional structures that produce and maintain political, social and ethnic inequalities.

• Identify, compare, and contrast the major theoretical perspectives in the discipline.

Interpret political science research through a working knowledge of qualitative and quantitative research designs.
