The Liberal Arts degree and certificate programs are designed for students who wish to have a broad knowledge of liberal arts and sciences.
If you plan to transfer to the California State University system (CSU), you are encouraged to pursue a Certificate of Achievement in Liberal Arts (CSUGE or IGETC). You should consult with a counselor to develop your own program of study.
If you plan to transfer to the California State University system OR the University of California system, you are encouraged to pursue an Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts which includes additional coursework in an “Area of Emphasis.” The choices for areas of emphasis are AA in Liberal Arts with Emphasis in Arts and Humanities and AA in Liberal Arts with Emphasis in Cross-Cultural Studies. Either of these would be an ideal choice for students who want to satisfy their general education requirements plus focus on transferable course work that relates to majors at CSU or UC. Please consult with a counselor for specific information regarding your intended major at the specific college/university of your choice.
