ART HISTORY

This program provides the academic and practical experience to prepare students for a career, or further education at a four-year institution, in art history and related fields, such as museum studies, art education and administration. The Associate in Arts in Art History for Transfer, also called the Art History AA-T, provides the academic and practical experience to transfer into the CSU system to complete a baccalaureate degree that will prepare students for a career in the Art History industry.

The Art History AA-T is especially designed for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in Art History at a CSU campus. Students completing an Art History AA-T are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major. The Art History AA-T degree requires students to complete 60 CSU transferable units including completion of CSU GE or IGETC and 18-20 units in the major with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Title 5 requires that students must earn a “C” or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis. There are no additional graduation requirements. Students are advised to consult with a counselor to verify transfer requirements.
